USMCA’s Cross-Border Data Transfer Provisions Enter Into Force, Setting a New Global Standard

WASHINGTON – July 1, 2020 – The Global Data Alliance welcomes today's entry into force of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, which contains the world's most advanced provisions on cross-border data transfers and data localization.

"The USMCA's data transfer provisions are a defining feature of this 21st Century trade agreement," stated Joseph Whitlock, Policy Director at BSA. "These provisions safeguard future access for American, Canadian, and Mexican companies and citizens to the economic opportunities and the cutting-edge technologies needed to compete in the global economy."

The USMCA’s data transfer provisions: (1) prohibit unnecessary data transfer restrictions; (2) protect against discrimination that would favor domestic data transfers over cross-border transfers; (3) apply to all sectors including financial services; and (4) stipulate that any data transfer rules must not: constitute disguised restrictions on trade, support arbitrary or unjustifiable discrimination, or impose transfer restrictions that are greater than are necessary. The USMCA also prohibits data localization mandates.

The USMCA data transfer provisions are critical to North American competitiveness and jobs. They also stand as a model for the world. In every sector of the economy, cross-border data transfers provide benefits — enabling innovation, creating jobs, and promoting productivity, safety, and environmental responsibility — through 21st century technologies like cloud computing, blockchain, data analytics, and artificial intelligence. Cross-border data transfers also enable every stage of the value chain, from R&D to production to post-sale service. By some estimates, 75% of the value of data transfers accrues to traditional industries like agriculture, logistics, and manufacturing. For more information, please see www.globaldataalliance.org
