EU-Approved GDPR Standard Contract Clauses: Mandatory Assessments, Affirmative Obligations of Data Importers
Recording of a 90-minute CLE video webinar with Q&A
The CLE course will guide counsel on the Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs) released by the European Union in 2021. The SCCs address the compliance requirements for cross-border data transfers under the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The panel will address what the EU has instituted and how the SCCs resolve certain practical issues companies face when using the older versions but simultaneously introduce obligations for businesses that transfer personal data out of the EU. The panel will also discuss the released set of SCCs to address GDPR Article 28 requirements for controller-to-processor personal data transfers within the European Economic Area (EEA).
- Standard contractual clauses for DPAs
- The implementation of the new SCCs under Articles 46(1) and (2)(c) of the GDPR
- The implementation of the new standard contractual clauses for DPAs under Article 28(7) of the GDPR
- Old SCCs adopted under Directive 95/47/EC
- Old SCCs executed before Sept. 27, 2021
The panel will review these and other key topics:
- What are the obligations for data importers, including importers acting as controllers, addressed in the new SCCs?
- How do the new SCCs consolidate terms and allow controllers and processors to select the relevant clauses that apply on a modular basis?
- How do the SCCs affect U.S.-based businesses and non-EU established data exporters to the extent the processing is subject to the GDPR under the extraterritorial reach of GDPR Article 3(2)?
- What are the processor terms included in the new SCCs?
- How are choice of governing law and jurisdiction affected by the SCCs?
- How do the SCCs address the concerns raised by the CJEU in Schrems II?
