    We have the bench of qualified data protection and cyber professionals, on hand to meet your Schrems II business needs.

    What is Schrems II?

    Schrems II is a colloquialism used to describe a case ruled on by the Court of Justice of the EU (CJEU) in 2020. In its judgment, the court identified shortcomings with the existing EU SCCs that the European Commission previously developed, and it confirmed the due diligence exercise businesses must complete to satisfy themselves that their data transfers arrangements will comply with the EU GDPR.

    The Impact for business

    The Schrems II ruling increases the burden of responsibility for businesses and has a wide-ranging impact on those with international operations, supply-chains and corporate partners. Businesses that have relied on the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield for transferring data can no longer do so and any data exporter looking to use SCCs or other instruments must assess whether the law of the destination country may hinder the ability of the recipient to handle the data safely.

    Potential actions for businesses include:

    Benefits-1

    Reviewing their own mechanisms for the transfer of data which may potentially pass between EEA and US jurisdictions

    Benefits-2

    Understanding their supply-chain’s management of their data and whether it violates GDPR, following the Schrems II findings

    Benefits-3

    Ensuring that contracts are compliant, and data related risks have been mitigated
