EU Commission Draft Amendments Remove Restrictions on DPAs’ Powers to Suspend or Restrict Data Transfers

Flags in front of the EU Commission building in Brussels

Previous European Commission decisions on Standard Contractual Clauses are amended to remove limitations on DPAs’ powers to suspend or ban data transfers (limitations include the DPA having to determine there is a substantial likelihood the clauses are not being complied with, or that the third country’s law is likely to have a substantial adverse effect on privacy guarantees); the amendments will lift limitations provided the DPAs inform the Commission when flows to third countries are suspended or banned.
