Pinsent Masons' Marc Dautlich has argued that a newly released paper from the European Commission indicates "the EU body's appetite for new mechanisms for transferring personal data to emerge from certification schemes and codes of conduct provided for by the General Data Protection Regulation," Out-Law.com reports. "Dautlich said that legal uncertainty over the future of some data transfer tools, including to EU model contract clauses, could help encourage the development of alternatives based on GDPR certification schemes and codes of conduct," the report states. He added that a way for organizations to "engage and exercise some control over their international data transfers" is to embrace certification schemes and codes of conduct as ways to establish "more legal certainty over such transfers." Editor's Note: The IAPP will host a GDPR bootcamp at the 2017 Europe Data Protection Intensive in London, March 13-16.
