Singapore appointed as Deputy Chair

Singapore has been appointed the Deputy Chair of the Global CBPR Forum Assembly

The Global CBPR Forum was co-founded by Singapore and other participants of the APEC CBPR System in April 2022. The Forum seeks to enable the free flow of data and effective data protection and privacy globally through the establishment of the Global CBPR and Privacy Recognition for Processors (PRP) Systems. With the publication of Global CBPR Framework and appointment of its leadership team, the Forum is now welcoming the participation of other jurisdictions.

The Global CBPR Framework complements the Global CBPR Declaration (2022) in setting out the principles and objectives of the Forum. The Framework establishes the core requirements on which the Global Cross-Border Privacy Rules (CBPR) and Global Privacy Recognition for Processors (PRP) Systems will be based.

“Our economy is increasingly driven by data. The Global CBPR Forum will boost trust in data flows across borders and unlock the potential for more data driven innovation. Singapore is honoured to be appointed as the Deputy Chair of the Global Forum Assembly. This affirms our digital thought leadership, and commitment to shaping global norms and standards to build a better digital future for all.” Said Lew Chuen Hong, Chief Executive of IMDA.
