Amendment LIBE #2454

Article 42 – Paragraph 4+

4a. A controller or processor may choose to base transfers on standard data protection clauses as referred to the relevant provisions in paragraph 2 of this Article, and to offer in addition to these standard clauses supplemental, legally binding commitments that apply to transferred data. In such cases, these additional commitments shall be subject to prior consultation with the competent supervisory authority and shall supplement and not contradict, directly or indirectly, the standard clauses. Member States, supervisory authorities and the Commission shall encourage the use of supplemental and legally binding commitments by offering a data protection seal, mark or mechanism, adopted pursuant to Article 39, to controllers and processors who adopt these heightened safeguards.
