Article 29 Working Party Issues BCR Guidelines for Data Processors

WP195 tries to balance the interests of the parties to the Service Agreement, by enabling the processor to change sub-processors under existing BCRs, but at the same time requiring notice to the controller about such change to give the controller a chance to terminate the Service Agreement.
