Standard contractual clauses on data protection pursuant to Article 46(2)

  • Standard contractual clauses (SCC) are standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission that can be used in contracts between two controllers or between a controller and a processor.
  • These standard clauses can be viewed on the website of the Data Protection Ombudsman (
  • If this is given as the basis for data transfer, we will take this criterion into account in the data permit decision. We will make the data available outside the EU/EEA subject to this condition and only after the applicant or permit holder has submitted to Findata the signed standard contractual clauses. The use of standard clauses will also require additional examination of the adequacy of data protection.  Please note that standard contractual clauses may not be modified or added to, but must be approved as they are.
