Another “safe” country

The European Commission has declared that New Zealand is a country with adequate data protection measures in place for the purposes of EU data transfers. This means that UK organisations can more easily and reliably transfer data to New Zealand. However, it doesn’t mean that the proper precautions can be relaxed – you will still need to satisfy yourselves that the transferee has adequate measures in place, you’ll need a robust data sharing or processor agreement etc.. But well done New Zealand!

” Vice-President Viviane Reding, the EU’s Justice Commissioner, said that: “This decision is another step to boosting trade with our international partners while helping to set high standards for personal data protection at a global level.” New Zealand is the eleventh country to be deemed by the Commission as having an adequate level of protection for personal data”.
