Description

The Framework, which aims at promoting electronic commerce throughout the Asia Pacific region, is consistent with the core values of the OECD’s Guidelines on the Protection of Privacy and Trans-Border Flows of Personal Data (OECD Guidelines), and reaffirms the value of privacy to individuals and to the information society.
 
The previous version of the Framework (2005) was modelled upon the OECD Guidelines (1980) which at that time represented the international consensus on what constitutes fair and trustworthy treatment of personal information. The updated Framework (2015) draws upon concepts introduced into the OECD Guidelines (2013) with due consideration for the different legal features and context of the APEC region.
