Europrivacy was presented in the session „Data Protection Certification for International Data Transfer” which took place on April 27th at 16:00 CET during eCommerce Week 2022. 

This year’s edition, themed “Data and Digitalization for Development”, put a dedicated focus on data and cross-border data flows and highlighted their crucial role in economical and social development. 

The panel “Data Protection Certification for International Data Transfer” recognized that the evolution of data protection regulations is directly impacting cross-border data flows and trade-related activities. Certification mechanisms have been integrated by several regulations to facilitate cross-border data transfer with data controllers and processors located in third countries. While these legal provisions come with specific requirements, new models of data protection certifications are emerging that can contribute to extending the geographic scope of such certifications. 

Chaired by Dr. Sébastien Ziegler, Director of Mandat International and Chairman of the Europrivacy International Board of Experts, expert speakers Luca Bolognini, Prof. Romeo Kadir, Adrian Quesada Rodriguez, and Renato Opice Blum presented the latest developments in this domain, including the APEC Privacy Framework and the Europrivacy certification scheme.
