Credibility

CSPs joining the EU Cloud Code of Conduct General Assembly commit to a robust level of data protection and underpin publicly their efforts to comply with GDPR requirements. Once approved, the Code becomes an official tool to prove compliance to GDPR. 

Monitoring

The Code is independently governed as declarations are overseen by SCOPE Europe, an independent code monitoring body. SCOPE Europe scrutinises cloud services that sign up to the Code and monitors them against the Code, as required by GDPR. 

Transparency

The Code’s enhanced transparency requirements outline clearly information which must be made available to all customers, including on topics not required by GDPR. By increasing transparency, the EU Cloud Code of Conduct creates an added value to the market. 

Variety

The Code covers the full spectrum of cloud services, from Software-as-a-Service and Platform-as-a-Service through to Infrastructure-as-a-Service. It addresses the needs and realties of internationally operating providers and of SMEs at the same time.
