Outline of BCR for Processors Published by Article 29 Working Party
On June 19, 2012, the Article 29 Working Party adopted a Working Paper (WP 195) on Binding Corporate Rules (BCR) for processors, to allow companies acting as data processors to use BCR in the context of transborder transfers of personal data, such as in the case of cloud computing and outsourcing.
WP 195 includes a full checklist of the requirements for BCR for Processors and is designed both for companies and for data protection authorities. The document provides a checklist outlining the conditions to be met in order to facilitate the use of BCR for processors, and the information to be found in the applications for approval of BCR to be presented in the application filed with the Data Protection Authorities.
