The French Data Protection Authority (CNIL) has issue a press release advising that it will be simplifying the data transfer notification formalities for those companies that have adopted Binding Corporate Rules (BCRs). The CNIL will grant a single decision to each group that adopted BCRs, so that group entities subject to compliance with the French Data Protection Act will no longer have to apply for each transfer outside of the European Union to be granted an authorisation.
