The Framework complements the Global CBPR Declaration (2022) in setting out the principles and objectives of the Forum. It is based on the APEC Privacy Framework and consistent with the core principles of the OECD’s Guidelines on the Protection of Privacy and Trans-Border Flows of Personal Data. The Global CBPR Framework establishes the core requirements on which the Global Cross-Border Privacy Rules (CBPR) and Global Privacy Recognition for Processors (PRP) Systems are to be based.
The Terms of Reference sets out the criteria and process by which jurisdictions can participate in the Forum. The Terms of Reference also sets out the Forum’s organizational structure, including the policy making body, the Global Forum Assembly (GFA), and its working committees. This structure provides a clear framework for the Forum’s initial operations, while also allowing for further expansion and development over time.
