From January 30 to February 3, the APEC Data Privacy Subgroup and its parent committee, the Electronic Commerce Steering Group, met in the Philippines for another round of negotiations and meetings, reports the Hunton & Williams Privacy and Information Security Law Blog. The meetings focused on implementing APEC’s Cross-Border Privacy Rules (CBPR) system; developing a corollary APEC recognition mechanism for data processors, and updating the APEC Privacy Framework, the report states. The CBPR system currently comprises the U.S., Mexico and Japan and will likely be joined by Canada later this month. Thus far, 10 companies have earned their CBPR certification under APEC-recognized accountability agent TRUSTe. The next round of meetings will be held in August.
