Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) is the premier Asia-Pacific economic forum whose primary goal is to support sustainable economic growth and prosperity in the Asia-Pacific region. The APEC Cross Border Privacy Rules (CBPR) is the first framework approved for the transfer of personal data between all 21 APEC Member countries with the U.S. being the first formal participant and the Federal Trade Commission serving as the first enforcement authority.

What is the APEC privacy framework?

The APEC Privacy Framework is a framework developed by APEC’s Electronic Commerce Steering Group (ECSG). It is aimed at effective information privacy protection and the free flow of information in the Asia-Pacific region – two factors that are key to improving consumer confidence and ensuring the growth of electronic commerce.

What is the CBPR system?

The APEC Cross-Border Privacy Rules (CBPR) System is a voluntary self-regulatory initiative designed to ensure the continued free flow of personal information across borders, within the APEC membership, while establishing meaningful protection for the privacy and security of personal information.
