The European Data Protection Board (EDPB) adopted a decision to resolve a dispute regarding data transfers to the United States by Meta Platforms Ireland Limited related to its Facebook service. The EDPB's binding decision plays a crucial role in ensuring the correct and consistent application of the GDPR by national Data Protection Authorities (DPAs).
