General Data Protection Regulation for international regulations:

International Data Transfer Agreement and Guidance


“On 2 February 2022, the Secretary of State laid before Parliament the international data transfer agreement (IDTA), the international data transfer addendum to the European Commission’s standard contractual clauses for international data transfers (Addendum), and a document setting out transitional provisions. This final step follows the consultation the ICO ran in 2021. The documents are issued under Section 119A of the Data Protection Act 2018.

If no objections are raised, they come into force on 21 March 2022. Exporters will be able to use the IDTA or the Addendum as a transfer tool to comply with Article 46 of the UK GDPR when making restricted transfers.

The IDTA and Addendum replace the current standard contractual clauses for international transfers. They take into account the binding judgment of the European Court of Justice, in the case commonly referred to as “Schrems II”.

These documents are immediate of use to organizations transferring personal data outside of the UK, subject to the caveat that they come into force on 21 March 2022 and are awaiting Parliamentary approval.”
