SWISS PRIVACY REGULATOR RULES US-SWISS PRIVACY SHIELD NOT ADEQUATE

On 9 September, an article from Fox Rothschild LLP says that (following the effect of the Schrems II decision on EU-US transfers) Switzerland’s Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC)  has determined that the US-Swiss Privacy Shield does not meet the “requirements of adequate data protection as defined by the FADP (Swiss Federal Act on Data Protection)”.   It issued a policy paper offering advice on transferring data to countries not on its list of nations with adequate safeguards.  The guidance provided includes that, when transferring data to non-listed countries, data exporters should conduct due diligence and, if necessary, contract clauses should be expanded.
