In a blog post for Fieldfisher, Phil Lee, CIPP/E, CIPM, discusses the Article 29 Working Party’s letter to the European Parliament illustrating the clear support that Binding Corporate Rules (BCRs) for processors have and will continue to have from the Working Party. BCRs are an “optimal solution to promote the European principles of personal data abroad,” said Working Party Chair Isabelle Falque-Pierrotin. The letter is “representative of a growing trend for global organizations to seek BCR approval in preference over other data export solutions,” Lee writes, noting there were 19 BCR-approved organizations in 2012 compared with 53 today. Editor’s Note: This exclusive in The Privacy Advisor describes in detail Align Technologies’ recent BCR approval process, which Lee facilitated.
