Shortly before Viviane Reding, Vice-President of the European Commission and Commissioner for Justice, Fundamental Rights and Citizenship, gave her keynote address on binding corporate rules (“BCRs”) at the IAPP Europe Data Protection Congress in Paris, Hunton & Williams co-authored two articles on BCRs with the French Data Protection Authority (“CNIL”):

  • Les “Binding Corporate Rules”: une solution globale pour les transferts internationaux, published in the August/September 2011 issue of the French legal journal Lamy Droit de l’Immatériel; and
  • Binding Corporate Rules: a global solution for international data transfers, published in the November 25, 2011 issue of the International Data Privacy Law Journal (Oxford Publications).

Both articles were written by Olivier Proust, French data protection lawyer and associate in Hunton & William’s Brussels office, and Emmanuelle Bartoli of the CNIL’s European and International Affairs department. Hunton & Williams has successfully assisted numerous multinational companies with the implementation of binding corporate rules.
