On Friday, June 4th, the European Commission published the finalized version of the new Standard Contractual Clauses for transferring personal data from the EU to third countries (the New SCCs). Privacy professionals have been waiting for the New SCCs for several years and have been particularly interested to know if the New SCCs will help address the complex requirements of the Schrems II case.

Watch this on-demand webinar where our lawyers discussed the impact of the key provisions of the new SCCs and what to do next. They also gave an update on how the new SCCs apply to UK organizations as well as the latest news on the UK adequacy decision.
