On 12 May 2022, the Hong Kong Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data (PCPD) issued a Guidance Note on the Recommended Model Contractual Clauses for Cross-border Transfers of Personal Data (2022 Guidance).
The 2022 Guidance is split into three “parts”:
- Part 1 is an introduction of the 2022 Guidance and the rationale underpinning it;
- Part 2 is an explanation on the use of the Recommended Model Contractual Clauses; and
- Part 3 is the Schedule which sets out the recommended model clauses.
