Background

The EU Cloud Code of Conduct was founded in February 2017, after four years of close collaboration between the European Commission and the cloud computing community. The EU Cloud CoC intends to increase transparency in the European cloud marketplace and those parties which sign up to it will certify that their services adhere to the rigorous European data protection requirements.

The EU Cloud CoC is open to all Cloud Service Providers, regardless of size and from all cloud sectors (IaaS, PaaS, SaaS), on the condition that the cloud services they sign up to the Code adhere to the data protection safeguards laid out in EU data protection legislation.

Next Steps

After an extensive revision of the Code, the EU Cloud Code of Conduct General Assembly published a revised Code version which will be submitted to the supervisory authorities for approval. The Code has been enhanced to ensure a robust level of data protection and transparency, complemented by an independent monitoring function. 

The substance of the Code was further developed and aligned to GDPR, also based on input by supervisory authorities and the recently published Guidelines on Codes of Conduct and Monitoring Bodies by the European Data Protection Board.
