The EU Commission has adopted new standard data protection clauses (also called standard contractual clauses (SCCs)). These new clauses are intended to improve legal protection when personal data is transferred out of the EU to third countries, especially with respect to the USA. This fundamental revision to the standard data protection clauses was made necessary by the elevated requirements under the EU General Data Protection Regulation and the CJEU’s Schrems II ruling of 16 July 2020.
Our GSK Update provides an overview of the new clauses and explains what companies need to do now.
