Binding Corporate Rules Scheme - GE approved

The UK Information Commissioner has approved the Binding Corporate Rules Scheme, which explains how GE's BCRs satisfy the requirements of the EU's Art 29 DP Working Party. The BCR document is detailed and covers areas, such as: jurisdiction of the Information Commissioner, evidence that GE's BCRs are legally binding, verification of compliance, description of processing and flows of information, data protection safeguards, and mechanism for reporting and recording change. More details about the BCR can be found on the European Commission's Data Protection website and the document issued by Art. 29 Working Party.
