Working Party Adopts Document on BCRs
PRIVACY LAW—EUJune 20, 2012
The Article 29 Working Party has adopted a working document on Binding Corporate Rules (BCRs) for Processors. The document includes a full checklist of requirements for processors and is designed both for companies and data protection authorities. The adoption is based on BCRs' success and the proposal to include BCRs for controllers and processors in the European Union's legal framework. The document's processor checklist includes the definition of what must be found in BCRs and what must be presented to data protection authorities during the application process. Next, the working party will develop a European coordination procedure on BCRs for processors.
