About CBPR Certification
APEC CBPR System was developed by APEC economies to build consumer, business and regulator trust in cross-border flows of personal data. This requires participating businesses to implement data privacy policies consistent with the APEC Privacy Framework and helps to bridge differing national privacy laws within the APEC region, reducing barriers to the flow of information for global trade. CBPR System applies to organisations (data controllers) that control the collection, holding, processing, or use of personal data
About PRP Certification
