Cost-effective solution to support you
The new SCCs replace the old SCCs (which may no longer be used on new deals). This means that businesses should review and update their templates and bring their systems and processes into compliance with the new SCCs. Businesses have until 27 December 2022 to identify and repaper existing international data transfer agreements using old SCCs, with the new SCCs. While this is a generous period, businesses should not under estimate the time and effort required for the repapering exercise.
The EU adopted the new SCCs after the UK left the EU, so the new SCCs do not take effect in the UK though the UK Information Commissioner's Office has announced that it intends to consult on and publish its own standard contractual clauses.
Our privacy, security and information law practice is able to offer a pragmatic, market-leading and cost effective solution to this re-papering challenge working with our alternative legal services business, Condor, using a combination of technology, nearshore and offshore delivery centres to balance quality with cost considerations.
Contact James Buckingham or Renzo Marchini for further information on SCCs and the options for using Condor in repapering existing documents with new SCCs.
