- The EDPB and EDPS have 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.
- Andrea Jelinek, Chair of the EDPB, said: The EDPB and EDPS welcome the controller-processor SCCs as a single, strong and EU-wide accountability tool that will facilitate compliance with the provisions under both the GDPR and the EUDPR.
- Moreover, we hope these SCCs will ensure further harmonisation and legal certainty for individuals and their personal data.
- 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.
- In addition, the SCCs should include a clear distribution of roles and of the liability regime between the parties.
