Transitioning to the Data Privacy Framework
Currently, there are no actions for Privacy Shield participants to take. BBB National Programs is awaiting guidance from the Department of Commerce to finalize our EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework program. If your business is not yet a participant, or has left the program and is looking to return, please contact us. To get on the mailing list for updates as information is available, subscribe to the Privacy Initiatives newsletter.
