EU DPAs adopt BCR opinions

The European Data Protection Board (EDPB) adopted, in its plenary 12-13 November, a favourable opinion on the application for Binding Corporate rules by ExxonMobil. The lead authority in this case was the Belgian Supervisory Authority. The EDPB is of the opinion that the draft controller BCRs provide sufficient safeguards within the meaning of Art. 46(2)(b) and comply with Art. 47 GDPR on Binding Corporate Rules.

Last month, the Board adopted a positive opinion on the BCRs submitted by Equinix Inc, with the UK ICO acting as the lead authority.

See the EDPB's Opinion of 8 October on Equinix.

The Opinion on ExxonMobil has not yet been made public.
