Standard Contractual Clauses

Develop Additional Guarantees For Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCS)

According to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), standard contractual clauses (SCCs) ensuring appropriate data protection safeguards can be used as grounds for data transfers from the EU to third countries.

This includes standard contractual clauses– that have been “pre-approved” by the European Commission.

2B Advice data protection and legal experts bring you the peace of mind that you are handling important data processing and data transfers in accordance with appropriate regulations such as the GDPR.

Oftentimes, the “pre-approved” SCCs are not sufficient for your particular business and require drafting of additional guarantees. Work with 2B Advice’s team of experts to tailor standard contractual clauses (SCC) to your business needs.

SCC Objectives​

Depending on the country data flows to, SCCs can be used as framework to ensure data and data subject safety. In certain situations, SCCs are proven to be not sufficient. It is well known that transfer of data to countries, such as US, where the local legislation is proved to be in conflict with the requirements of the GDPR cannot be based just on SCCs. 


Additional guarantees will be written to maximize compliance based on your Company’s countries of operation.
