On March 6, 2018, Singapore announced that it has joined the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Cross-Border Privacy Rules (CBPR) system as well as the APEC Privacy Recognition for Processors (PRP) program. Singapore is the sixth member of the CBPR system, which includes Canada, Japan, Korea, Mexico and the United States, and is the second member of the PRP program after the U.S.
Faced with a diversity of privacy laws across APEC member countries, APEC established the CBPR program to facilitate the transmittal of personal data across national borders within and between companies and organizations. Companies and organizations in CBPR member countries that collect and use personal data (i.e., data controllers) will be able to obtain CBPR certification through a compliance review process by an independent evaluator. APEC aims through the program to ensure that participating companies will comply with standardized security and privacy measures, to increase consumer and business confidence in certified entities and to align APEC’s privacy framework to internationally accepted standards.
