The IRSG Data workstream has responded to the ICO’s consultation on international transfers under UK GDPR. The IRSG has responded to the three sections: (1) proposal and plans for the ICO to update its guidance on international transfers – including (a) interpretation of the extra-territorial effects of Article 3 UK GDPR, (b) interpretation of Chapter V UK GDPR); (2) transfer risk assessments and (3) ICO model international transfer agreements. Given the important of international data flows to the UK’s digital economy, the IRSG is keen to see a system that that maintains high standards of data protection, and trust and confidence.
