A new post-Schrems II transfer solution for cloud services?
The EU Cloud Code of Conduct General Assembly, creators of the EU Cloud Code of Conduct, announced work is underway on a proposed legal solution for the transfer of personal data outside the EU.
The Cloud Code of Conduct, which defines clear requirements for cloud service providers acting as “processors” under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and is adopted broadly by the cloud market, is under review by the European Data Protection Board as an approved Code of Conduct under GDPR.
In the interim, the EU Cloud Code of Conduct General Assembly is proposing the creation of a new module to the Code for transferring personal data outside of the EU.
The EU Cloud Code of Conduct General Assembly invites interested Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) and cloud-users to join the initiative and to contribute to the development of the module, thereby shaping the future legal basis to transfer EU citizen’s personal data to third countries around the world.
