Schrems Season 2
Advocate General deems SCCs valid, but raises questions over the Privacy Shield
WebinarGlobal | January 09, 2020
On December 19, 2019, the Advocate General (AG) concluded that, in his opinion (which is non-binding), the EU Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs) are a valid mechanism to transfer personal data outside of the European Economic Area, but expressed doubts over the Privacy Shield.
On Thursday January 9 our international data privacy group will be hosting a webinar to discuss:
- Why the AG’s opinion is so interesting and what it could mean for the future of data transfers if followed by the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU).
- The undiscussed issues of the original referral that the CJEU could pick up on.
- How the opinion, if followed by the CJEU, may impact the Privacy Shield when the case of La Quadrature du Net v Commission is heard.
- Possible implications for the UK’s application for an adequacy finding post-Brexit.
- What organisations can do to prepare for the final judgement and the outcome of La Quadrature du Net v Commission.
