EDPB & EDPS joint opinions on new sets of SCCs
On 14 January 2021 the EDPB and EDPS adopted joint opinions on two sets of standard 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.
The Controller-Processor SCCs will have an EU-wide effect and aim to ensure full harmonisation and legal certainty across the EU when it comes to contracts between controllers and their processors.
The EDPB and EDPS adopted the joint opinions during 44th plenary session on 14th January 2021.
