CNPD - Intragroup Agreement for International Data Transfer
Article posted 17/11/2015
Article written by Monica Oliveira Costa from PLG's member firm
CRA Law in Lisbon on the Portuguese DPA Decision of
November 10, explicitly stating that Intragroup
Agreements used for the transfer of personal data to a third
country are appropriate contractual clauses as long as their
clauses are identical and compliant with the Standard Contractual
Clauses (Model Clauses) approved by the European Commission.
However and regrettably, Binding Corporate Rules (BCRs) are still not recognised by the CNPD as a legitimate ground for international data transfers.
