GDPR applies to organisations that process personal data of individuals within the EEA, regardless of the organisation’s location. When engaging in international trade involving EEA individuals’ data, GDPR compliance is essential.
GDPR provides several lawful mechanisms for cross-border data transfers, including Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs), Binding Corporate Rules (BCRs), and obtaining explicit consent from data subjects.
Non-compliance with GDPR can lead to significant fines, legal actions, and reputational damage. Ensuring GDPR compliance in international trade protects your organisation’s reputation and prevents legal consequences.
