Transfers of personal data outside of EEA; What is the status today?

In principle, transfer of personal data to a third country is prohibited. However, there are some exceptions from this rule. A transfer can take place if the conditions laid down in the provisions of the GDPR relating to the transfer of personal data to third countries are complied with by the controller or the processor. The GDPR provides different transfer mechanisms for transfers of personal data from the EEA to a third country. In the Schrems II judgement handed down by the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) on 16 July 2020 , the CJEU declared that the transfer mechanism Privacy Shield for transfers between the EEA and the U.S was no longer lawful.
