You may sometimes get the feeling no progress is being made to solve the issue of transferring personal data from the European Union to other countries around the world. After the draft EDPB Recommendations and draft model Standard Contractual Clauses, no major changes have been communicated.
But that does not mean nothing is happening - behind the scenes, negotiations are ongoing and documents are being finalised and the first enforcement cases are being decided upon. The new Standard Contractual Clauses should be adopted in April, the negotiations on the Privacy Shield 2.0 have recently been intensified and new adequacy decisions have been announced for both the UK and South Korea.
What are the lessons we can learn from all these developments on how to transfer personal data from Europe to other parts of the world?
