Did you know that new 'Standard Contractual Clauses' (SCCs) are required when transferring data outside the EEA?
On the 4th of June 2021, the European Commission adopted new 'Standard Contractual Clauses' (SCCs) as an appropriate safeguard for the transfer of personal data outside the European Economic Area (EEA). The new clauses are a welcome development, but with limited time to implement programs to ensure compliance with new requirements, and 15 months to update all agreements that rely on the old standard contractual clauses, companies that import/export data of EEA subjects must act quickly.
In association with ByrneWallace LLP, one of Ireland’s leading law firms, Mazars hosted a webinar on 'Transferring data under the new SCCs' on Thursday, 7th of October at 10 am.
Liam McKenna, Partner, will moderate the event and will be joined by David O'Sullivan, Manager, Mazars and Zelda Deasy, Senior Associate, ByrneWallace LLP. Our presenters will outline:
- The key differences between the new and old SCCs
- Risks associated with non-compliance
- Transfer impact assessments
- The role of policies and importance of contractual work
- Next steps
