The new standard form International Data Transfer Agreement (ITDA) and Addendum to the new EU Standard Contractual Clauses (SCC Addendum) for transfers of personal data from the UK to countries not covered by UK adequacy decisions come into force on 21 March 2022.

The old EU standard contractual clauses may continue to be used for transfers from the UK for contracts signed on or before 21 September 2022 until 21 March 2024 adapted for use in the UK context – provided there are no changes to the processing operations or the subject matter of the contract, and provided they ensure a level of protection equivalent to that under the UK data protection regime.  Guidance appears on the Information Commissioner’s Office website.
