On 13 November, an EU news release advised that such modernised clauses will assist companies with their efforts to comply with the GDPR requirements. For its work on modernising the SCC, the Commission has also taken into account the guidance from the Schrems II judgment of July 2020. The draft clauses have been sent to the European Data Protection Board and the European Data Protection Supervisor for their opinion. After taking these opinions into account, as well as the outcome of the 4-week public consultation, the final clauses will be adopted by the Commission, after having obtained the green light from Member States’ representatives in the so-called comitology procedure. The updated clauses will be complemented by the guidance prepared by the European Data Protection Board and which was published on 11 November.
