BRUSSELS – The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers organization (ICANN org) announced in a press release that it has submitted a comment to the European Data Protection Board, concerning its recommendations 01/2020 on measures that supplement transfer tools to ensure compliance with the European Union (EU) level of protection of personal data. This comment follows ICANN org's comment submitted to the European Commission (EC) on 10 December 2020 concerning the EC's updated standard contractual clauses for transferring personal data to non-EU countries.

ICANN org's comment raises concerns related to the potential impact of the recommendations, particularly related to transfers of personal data from the European Union to the United States. This comment encourages the European Data Protection Board to adopt a risk-based approach to determining the safeguards that must be applied to make the transfer of data GDPR-compliant.

All contributions to public comment will be available on the EDPB website.
