Brazil: BSA Submission to Brazil ANPD re: Consultation on International Data Transfers

The need to transfer data internationally is not unique to technology companies – it is crucial for all companies that use technology, regardless of their size or industry sector. International data flows underpin today’s global economy and companies must transfer data every day to perform routine activities like processing payroll, working with suppliers, and serving customers worldwide. Companies need reliable and stable data transfer mechanisms that support responsible data flows.

We commend the ANPD for recognizing the importance of international data flows and for recognizing that data transfer mechanisms have become a key instrument for both protecting data subjects’ rights and for the development of the digital economy and international trade. We encourage you to prioritize transfer mechanisms that are based on high levels of data protection, trust, and confidence.
