The ICO has released an updated statement addressing the two recommendations (supplementary measures in the context of international safeguards and the European Essential Guarantees for surveillance measures) published by the European Data Protection Board (EDPB) following the Schrems II case. 

The ICO has stated that it is currently reviewing the recommendations and will consider whether it needs to publish its own guidance in the future. 

In addition, the ICO is reviewing the European Commission's new SCCs, currently under consultation.

Organisations have been advised to take stock of their international transfers, updating their practices as more guidance becomes available.
