EU SCC deadline for data transfer contracts fast approaching

08/11/2022 | Pinsent Masons

Businesses transferring personal data to countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA) should review their processing operations ahead of the December deadline. Organisations must transition to new standard contractual clauses (SCCs) issued by the European Commission by 27 December. 

In related news from Germany, the State Commissioner for Data Protection of Lower Saxony, Barbara Thiel, has sent out a reminder to companies and other bodies whose processing operations involve transferring personal data to countries outside the EEA. Those organisations must transition to new SCCs issued by 27 December. Businesses "and other responsible bodies must check whether they are still transferring personal data on the basis of the previous standard contractual clauses," Barbara Thiel said. "If that's the case, you should change the contracts to the new clauses immediately."
