The EDPB releases recommendations on cross-border data transfers

On 11 November 2020, the EDPB released two recommendations regarding cross-border data transfers. Public consultation is running until 30 November 2020.


  • Recommendations 01/2020 on measures that supplement transfer tools to ensure compliance with the EU level of protection of personal data (these recommendations provide data exporters with a series of steps to follow, potential sources of information, and some examples of supplementary measures that could be put in place), and


  • Recommendations 02/2020 on the European Essential Guarantees for surveillance measures (these recommendations provide elements to examine whether surveillance measures allowing access to personal data by public authorities in a third country can be regarded as a justifiable interference or not).
