Guidelines on derogations in the context of international data transfers provides insight into Article 49 of the GDPR; namely the correct application of exemptions from the general principle that personal data may only be transferred to countries outside of the EEA if an adequate level of data protection is provided for, or if appropriate safeguards have been implemented.
