EDPB Publishes Recommendations on International Data Transfers Following Schrems II

On 10 November 2020, the European Data Protection Board (the “EDPB”) adopted Recommendations 01/2020 on measures that supplement transfer tools to ensure compliance with the EU level of protection of personal data (the “Recommendations”). These hotly anticipated Recommendations are a follow-up to the Schrems II decision of the Court of Justice of the European Union (the “CJEU”) earlier this year (see our previous briefing on the decision here). The Recommendations are in draft format and are open for public consultation until 30 November 2020. The EDPB also published Recommendations 02/2020 on the European Essential Guarantees for surveillance measures (the “EEG Recommendations”).
