Memo published on Building a common EU and UK BCR framework

Following a PL&B Binding Corporate Rules Workshop, in association with and hosted by Hogan Lovells (HL) in London on 12 December, PL&B and HL sent a memo yesterday to the European Commission, EDPB, ICO and DCMS, arguing the case for a common EU/UK framework for Binding Corporate Rules.

The memo identifies differences between the current EU BCR approach and the ICO’s new UK version. It encourages the EDPB and the ICO to have harmonised BCR schemes with mutual recognition in a way that enhances the role of BCR as a model for global data protection.
