ICO: Brexit – do you need a Standard Contractual Clause (SCC)?

As previously advised in our March 2019 newsletter, the ICO has produced Brexit-related data protection advice. For those small or medium-sized UK-based organisations who receive data from EEA countries, they suggest you consider their guidance on how to keep the flow of data following Brexit. One of their pieces of advice is to get a specific contract in place, if you don’t already, which contains EU approved clauses. Their website provides template Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs) which you can use, together with advice on how to use them, and even an interactive tool to help you work out whether you need an SCC and which of their tools to use if you do. If you have any questions, or require specific advice on this area, please contact Dixcart Legal for more information.
