On October 1, 2008, the Article 29 Working Party issued a toolkit on Binding Corporate Rules (BCRs) aimed at promoting them as a mechanism for transferring data to countries without an adequate level of data protection. The toolkit includes: (1) a table highlighting the elements and principles to be found in BCRs (WP 153); (2) a document setting up a framework for the structure of BCRs (WP 154); and (3) a revised version of the FAQs on BCRs (WP 155). The toolkit also announced the creation of a mutual recognition procedure between nine national data protection authorities. More information is available here.
