There is as Ian G mentions a lack of guidance and the IDTA document is probably less straightforward than completing the Standard Contractual Clauses. I have only had cause to use the documentation once in respect of a software service based in the USA that had several data processors. There has been no response from my counterpart in the USA. Considering that the documentation has been worked upon through an ICO consultation in 2021 and laid before Parliament in February 2022, it beggars belief that there is no guidance to support UK Data Controllers in complying with these legal obligations.
i thought the deadline for the UK IDTA is end of March 2024 not 2023 – or I have I missed something? I have done one UK addendum to the EU SCCs as working for a multinational we have processes in third countries and controllers in the UK and parts of the EU. I spoke to the ICO about when the IDTA/Addendum accompanying guidance was going to be produced and they were fairly non-committal which is disappointing as we’re having to work to the EU deadline of December 2022 for SCC transfers and the UK regulator not having settled on its guidance isn’t great (I don’t find the addendum document that intuitive to follow).
