Action Required: Update Your Data Sharing Agreements Now!

Is your business continuing to transfer personal data overseas based on the old model clauses, or “SCCs”?

Back in 2021, the landscape of data protection took a significant turn with the introduction of new model clauses for the international transfer of personal data, including UK-specific variants. These changes were not just superficial updates; they were comprehensive overhauls designed to fortify data protection in our increasingly interconnected world.

The grace period granted for the transition from the old model clauses to these robust new frameworks expired on 21 March 2024. This means that as of now, relying on the outdated clauses could put your organisation at risk of non-compliance with current data protection standards—a scenario no organisation wants to find itself in.

Understanding the complexity and the potential legal ramifications of this transition, we recognise that updating your contracts might seem daunting. However, this update is not just about compliance; it’s about ensuring that your organisation continues to foster trust and integrity in the handling of personal data across borders.

Our team is ready and able to assist you through this critical transition. We’re here to review your current contracts, guide you through the intricacies of the new SCCs, and ensure your international data transfers remain compliant and secure. Don’t let this last reminder pass you by—ensure your data transfer agreements are up to date and aligned with the latest standards.

For advice, support, or a compliance check, don’t hesitate to reach out. Our experts are ready to help your organisation navigate this change smoothly and efficiently.
