Standard Contractual Clauses (SCC)
Standard contractual clauses for data transfers between EU and non-EU countries.
According to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), contractual clauses ensuring appropriate data protection safeguards can be used as a ground for data transfers from the EU to third countries. This includes model contract clauses – so-called standard contractual clauses (SCCs) – that have been “pre-approved” by the European Commission.
On 4 June 2021
, the Commission issued modernised standard contractual clauses under the GDPR for data transfers from controllers or processors in the EU/EEA (or otherwise subject to the GDPR) to controllers or processors established outside the EU/EEA (and not subject to the GDPR):
These modernised SCCs will replace the three sets of SCCs that were adopted under the previous Data Protection Directive 95/46.
