Argentina Regulates Personal Data Transfers

The Argentina Data Protection Agency has issued DNPDP Disposition 60 - a new regulation on international transfers of personal data.

The Regulation approves two model forms for the international transfer of data - one for use with transfers to a data controller and another for use with transfers to a data processor, for rendering services. The model is based partly on the EU model, if the data controller wishes to use a different model, the controller must file a request for approval with the DPA within 30 days.

The Regulation also lists countries that are considered "adequate" for purposes of cross-border data transfers.
