Binding Corporate Rules

Oxford University Press

This chapter introduces the Binding Corporate Rules (BCR) regime as developed by the Working Party 29, recognizing corporate self-regulation as an alternative method for multinationals to comply with the EU data transfer rules. It discusses the European BCR approval procedure as well as its shortcomings. It is further discussed in which non-EU countries BCR are (potentially) recognized as a valid data transfer tool also for data transfers from these non-EU countries. Recommendations are made to recognize BCR as a valid tool for data transfers in the proposal for a Regulation on Data Protection and to streamline the BCR authorization procedure.

Keywords:   data transfers, data transfer rules, self-regulation, BCR approval procedure, Working Party 29
