Peter James, Commercial and Technology Partner at UK TAGLaw member, Clarkslegal LLP, sets out the ground rules for international data transfers.

With the increasing trend of globalisation and internet usage, it is difficult for businesses to control the transfer of personal data for which they are responsible.  However, it is that processor’s responsibility (as data controller) to ensure that the requirements of the Data Protection Act 1998 are met.

Due to European harmonisation, data transfers within the EEA (that is the EU Member States plus Iceland, Norway and Liechtenstein) can be made on the same basis as UK data transfers.
