The Global Privacy Enforcement Network (GPEN) is a group of privacy regulators whose mission is to improve cooperation in enforcement of cross-border laws affecting privacy.

Contents

Overview

The Global Privacy Enforcement Network was formed in 2010 in response to an OECD Recommendation on Cross-border Cooperation in the Enforcement of Laws Protecting Privacy. That document recommended cooperation among privacy authorities in areas such as education and enforcement.

Members include privacy authorities from Australia, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Macau SAR (China), Czech Republic, Estonia, France, Germany, Guernsey, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Korea, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland, Ukraine, United Kingdom, the United States and the European Union.

Activities

In March 2013 GPEN announced that it, with the cooperation of other local privacy authorities, would conduct a survey of smartphone applications to determine how their developers are addressing user privacy, to assess legal compliance, and to educate the public.
