The general conditions for the transfer of personal data to countries outside the EU/EEA ("third countries") and international organisations are laid down in Article 44 GDPR. Two steps have to be taken for the lawfulness of such data transfers.

(1) Since a 'transfer' of personal data is a 'processing', the first condition is the general compliance with the provisions of the GDPR. This includes the requirement of a legal basis according to Art. 6 GDPR and the fulfillment of the principles in Art. 5 GDPR.

(2) The second condition considers the situation that in countries outside the EU/EEA the GDPR does not apply. The protection in the EU shall not be undermined by a transfer to a third country, Therefore, additional obligations have to be met to ensure the protection of the personal data being subject to a data transfer. These specific conditions can be found in chapter five.
