New European Standard Contractual Clauses for data processors

In February 2010, the European Commission approved new Standard Contractual Clauses for the transfer of personal data to processors outside the European Economic Area (New Processor Clauses). At the same time, the commission repealed its 2001 decision approving a predecessor version of such clauses (Old Processor Clauses) effective May 15, 2010. As a result, multinational organizations will consider updating their group-internal and external contracts relating to data processing and service providers can expect requests from their customers to sign updated forms.
