The Commission recently completed a review of 11 existing adequacy decisions, “adopted under EU data protection law which preceded the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)”
It “notes that personal data transferred from the European Union to Andorra, Argentina, Canada, Faroe Islands, Guernsey, Isle of Man, Israel, Jersey, New Zealand, Switzerland and Uruguay continue to benefit from adequate data protection guarantees. Therefore, the adequacy decisions adopted for these 11 countries and territories are maintained and data can continue to flow freely to them.”
Adequacy decisions are also in force with Japan, the Republic of Korea, the United Kingdom (under the GDPR and the Law Enforcement Data Protection Directive) and the United States (for commercial organizations certified under the EU-US Data Protection Framework).
