The EU Cloud Code of Conduct is a sector-specific Code pursuant to GDPR Article 40, currently pending the endorsement and official approval by supervisory authorities. Among the key benefits of the Code is its applicability to the full spectrum of cloud services, as all services types (SaaS, PaaS, IaaS) can be declared adherent against the Code. The Code’s General Assembly members are eligible to declare their services adherent and make them subject to the robust monitoring and assessment of the Code’s Monitoring Body, thereby underpinning GDPR compliance.
