Canada Joins APEC Cross-Border Privacy Rules System

The Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) announced (press release) that Canada has become the latest addition to the APEC Cross-Border Privacy Rules (CBPR) System, joining the U.S., Mexico, and Japan. The CBPR system works to increase the protection of consumer data as it is transmitted across borders throughout the Asia-Pacific region.

The CBPR system requires organizations in participating APEC member countries to develop their own internal rules on cross-border data privacy procedures, complying with the minimum requirements set forth in the APEC Privacy Framework.
