THE EDPB AND EDPS ADOPT JOINT OPINIONS ON TWO NEW SETS OF SCCS.
The European Data Protection Board ('EDPB') and the European Data Protection Supervisor ('EDPS') announced, on 15.01.2021, a statement that they had adopted joint opinions on two sets of contractual clauses (SCCs). One opinion on the SCCs for contracts between controllers and processors and one on the SCCs for the transfer of personal data to third countries.
In general, the EDPB and the EDPS are of the opinion that the draft SCCs present a reinforced level of protection for data subjects. In particular, the EDPB and the EDPS welcome the specific provisions intended to address some of the main issues identified in the “Schrems II” Judgment.
