In response to the changes in data management of businesses and for greater transparency, the European Commission had updated the standard contractual clauses on outsourcing data processing work outside the European Union.
Under the updated clauses, outsourcing companies that provide personal data processing services to clients in EU should get a written consent first before subcontracting data processing work to another company. European market research firms that transfer data processing operations overseas such as in India will be affected by the updated rules.
“This updated version of the standard contractual clauses takes account of new business models and the growing trends to global processing and outsourcing. The updated standard contractual clauses ensure a balance between global business needs and protection of EU citizens’ personal data,” said Jacques Barrot, vice-president of the Commission.
