Abstract: On the 8th of September, AG Mengozzi issued his Opinion in the first case brought to the CJEU on the validity of an international agreement in light of the EU Charter. The European Parliament referred the text of the PNR Agreement with Canada before approving the proposal of the Council. This case also gives the Court the opportunity to further specify the criteria that should regulate the mass collection by law enforcement authorities of data captured by the private sector in their day-to-day business. The case is situated in the line of other cases brought before the CJEU (Digital Rights Ireland, Schrems) and the ECtHR (Zakharov and Szabó ).
