As you might know, the new EU SCCs were published last year. The UK has now issued new templates for data transfers that can be used from 21 March 2022. With the UK templates confirmed and available, many multinational organisations with presence in the EU and the UK are gearing up to transition their contracts to the new templates. There are some deadlines to be aware of, which you will find in the ‘key dates to note’ section below.
The main agreements that organisations will need to focus on as part of their transition programme are:
- template agreements with customers and vendors on processing personal data;
- existing agreements with customers and vendors; and
- existing agreements within the group companies.
