APEC Privacy Committee Meets To Discuss CBPR System And EU Cooperation

The APEC Data Privacy Subgroup (DPS) and its parent committee, the Electronic Commerce Steering Group (ECSG), met for another round of negotiations and meetings. The principal focus of the meetings was implementing the APEC Cross-Border Privacy Rules (CBPR) system, developing a corollary APEC recognition mechanism for information processors, related work relevant to cross-border interoperability, and updating the APEC Privacy Framework. APEC needs to take steps to ensure the long-term financial sustainability of the CBPR 's governance and operations infrastructure as more APEC economies join the system and more companies seek CBPR (and soon PRP) certification.
