LinkedIn Live: ‘SCC Masterclass: Keys to Implementation’
Published: June 2021
On June 4, the European Commission adopted its highly anticipated new set of standard contractual clauses for the transfer of personal data from the EU to third countries. SCCs are by far the most commonly used mechanisms to legally transfer data from European companies. This means over the next months, as the old SCCs sunset and the new versions come into focus, tens of thousands of companies will work feverishly to sign new contracts and replace the ones already established.
What are the main features of the new SCCs? Who can use them and who can’t? How do they fit in with additional requirements, particularly the “Schrems II” obligations of supplementary measures and transfer impact assessments? How will companies implement the “docking clause” in multi-party agreements? What are the main general obligations and what are some of the nuances in C2C, C2P, P2P and P2C agreements? In this session, IAPP Vice President and Chief Knowledge Officer Omer Tene discussed the nuts and bolts of the new SCCs with Bird & Bird International Data Protection and Practice Partner and Co-head Ruth Boardman.
