Standard contractual clauses for data protection

The European Commission has issued a decision on standard contractual clauses for the transfer of personal data to countries outside the EU. The level of protection required for such data is inadequately recognised (http://europa.eu.int/comm/internal_market/en/dataprot/news/1539en.pdf). This comes as an amendment to the decision 2001/497/EG (IP/01/851),which recommends standard contractual clauses ´for processing officers´ when transferring personal data.
