Here is one more note on the UK Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport’s (DCMS) new international transfers initiative: The documents contain a template and a detailed questionnaire for assessing the adequacy of the destination third country in connection with data protection.

These are organized, thorough and very user-friendly documents that should even prove useful to us in conducting Schrems II TIAs. They also are easier to use than either the European Data Protection Board guidelines on Essential Guarantees or the Annex III attached to the EDPB Schrems II guidelines.

Here’s hoping for similar documentation to come from the EC/EDPB!
