Privacy Compliance under Standard Contractual Clauses

EU Standard Contractual Clauses

The Council and the European Parliament have given the EU Commission the power to decide, that certain standard contractual clauses offer sufficient safeguards as required.

The Commission has so far issued three sets of standard contractual clauses

  • two sets for transfers from data controllers in EU to data controllers outside EU/EEA
  • one set for the transfer from EU data controller to processors¬†established outside the EU/EEA.

Adoption of these standard clauses could be considered if found suitable.
