Overview Edit

Thirteen privacy enforcement agencies around the world have created the Global Privacy Enforcement Network (GPEN) — a network designed to facilitate cross-border cooperation in the enforcement of privacy laws. This network is intended to provide greater international cooperation in privacy protection.

Background Edit

In June 2007, OECD governments adopted a Recommendation on Cross-border Cooperation in the Enforcement of Laws Protecting Privacy. The Recommendation called for member countries to foster the establishment of an informal network of Privacy Enforcement Authorities [para. 21]. It further specifies a number of tasks for the network:

  • Discuss the practical aspects of privacy law enforcement co-operation;
  • Share best practices in addressing cross-border challenges;
  • Work to develop shared enforcement priorities; and
  • Support joint enforcement initiatives and awareness campaigns.

In the summer of 2008, privacy authorities began to exchange experiences and discuss the practical aspects of enforcement cooperation via a Web utility.
