McLean, VA – April 21, 2022 – Josh Harris, Director, Global Privacy Initiatives, BBB National Programs applauded the establishment of a Global Cross-Border Privacy Rules (CBPR) Forum, as announced today in a statement from U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo. Harris issued the following statement: 

“The launch of a Global CBPR Forum is a key development in international cooperation on cross-border data flows. This Forum continues and expands the US approach to data flows and paves the way for new entrants into this system – particularly those countries that have developed or are developing a national data privacy certification. Additionally, this Forum provides a mechanism for such certifications to be cross recognized in a first-of-its-kind international exchange, helping to bridge different regulatory approaches to data protection and privacy. 

I am happy to see the work of these governments realized, work that has been in development for several years. We look forward to continuing our support of this work in our capacity as a participating Accountability Agent for both the CBPR and PRP certifications.”
