The new Regulation (EU) 2021/888 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 20 May 2021 establishing the European Solidarity Corps Programme, repealed Regulations (EU) 2018/1475 and (EU) No 375/2014 with effect from 1 January 2021, in order to establish a programme from 1 January 2021 to 31 December 2027 based on the principle of solidarity in which the EU is built, to increase the participation of young people aged between 18 and 30 in Humanitarian aid volunteering actions between Member States and with third countries affected by man-made or natural disasters. This regulation also will create more volunteering, traineeship and job opportunities in this field for young people. For the implementation of the Programme this Regulation will also provide a financial envelope of 1 009 000 000 EUR.
It will enter into force as a matter of urgency and apply, with retroactive effect, from 1 January 2021.
The Commission Decision of 7 June 2021 repealed Decision 2009/17/EC 2021/C 219 I/01, in order to adapt to the Regulation (EU) 2019/1149 of the European Parliament and of the Council, which established the European Labour Authority to assist the Member States and the Commission in strengthening the access to information, support compliance and cooperation between the Member States in the consistent, efficient and effective application and enforcement of the Union law related to labour mobility across the Union, coordinate social security systems within the Union and mediate and facilitate solutions in case of disputes. Now the European Labour Authority cover part of the tasks previously carried out by the Committee that was established by the Commission Decision 2009/17/E.
This Decision shall apply from 26 May 2021.
Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2021/914 of 4 June 2021 on standard contractual clauses for the transfer of personal data to third countries pursuant to Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council, in order to grant more the data protection and to ensure the correct application of Article 46(1) of Regulation (EU) 2016/679, repealed with effect from 27 September 2021 Decision 2001/497/EC as regards the introduction of an alternative set of standard contractual clauses for the transfer of personal data to third countries and Commission Decision 2010/87/EU. Because those Decisions contain standard contractual clauses to facilitate the transfer of personal data from a data controller established in the Union to a controller or processor established in a third country that does not offer an adequate level of protection.
Furthermore, those decisions were based on the repealed Directive 95/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council.
This Implementing Decision set out in its Annex a number of Clauses that ensure appropriate safeguards, including enforceable data subject rights and effective legal remedies.
