Singapore PDPC Recognises APEC CBPR and PRP Certifications

Singapore PDPC

Singapore PDPC amends the Personal Data Protection Regulations to recognise Cross Border Privacy Rules

The Singapore Personal Data Protection Commission (PDPC) has amended the Personal Data Protection Regulations to recognise the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Cross Border Privacy Rules (CBPR) System and Privacy Recognition for Processors (PRP) System certifications as one of the modes for transfers of data overseas.

An overseas recipient that is CBPR- or PRP-certified is considered legally bound to provide comparable protection for the transferred personal data to the PDPA. Organisations in Singapore can thus easily transfer personal data to the overseas recipient without meeting additional requirements.
