Posted - 15.07.2022
On 25 May 2022, exactly 4 years after entry into force of the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), the European Commission released new guidance on Standard Contractual Clauses (“SCCs”).
Earlier in 2021, the Commission adopted a new set of SCCs aiming at providing greater flexibility for cross-border data transfer of personal data from the European Economic Area to third countries not benefiting from an adequacy decision.
The Commission published Questions and Answers on SCCs based on feedback received from various stakeholders and addressing 44 practical questions raised about the new modular-type SCCs.
