Transfer Impact Assessment for Jira



Transfer Impact Assessment is an application tool helping companies to be compliant with the Chapter 5 GDPR regulations and to make an inventory of the data processing what you are doing with the concerned personal data.

The new Standard Contractual Clauses (SCC) stipulate in clause 14 that the parties shall conduct a "Transfer Impact Assessment" to determine whether the transfer mechanism under articles 45 et seq. of the GDPR is effectively ensuring an adequate level of data protection in the third country and whether it is not being undermined by the transfer in practice or local law. The SCCs could become void if such a Transfer Impact Assessment is not carefully drafted, which would lead to an unauthorized transfer of personal data from the EU to a third country. We want to help you properly set up the SCCs and the TIAs in particular to avoid potential fines resulting from such a GDPR infringement.

The Unicis.TIA app has the following primary features:

  • Set to which project should the application be available
  • Transfer Impact Assessment dashboard
  • Edit, view, and delete records of Transfer Impact Assessment
  • Activity logs of changes


For more info please see the demo video (1:44 minute long):


Transfer Impact Assessment (TIA) is developed with Atlassian Forge platform. Hence, it can be only installed in Atlassian Jira Cloud product. It requires read, write, manage and storage access to your Jira account, because the Transfer Impact Assessment records are stored in your Atlassian Cloud instance, and not shared with Unicis. Unfortunately, it can not be installed for Server and Data Jira set up.
