The OECD is undertaking analytical work on how emerging regulation on cross border data flows affects business activity. The purpose is to evaluate different policy options that meet government concerns in the least business distorting fashion. We are pleased to invite you to participate in this debate by completing this short 10-15 minute anonymous online questionnaire which you can access here.
These regulations affect whether data can be sent across borders, and or whether it needs to be stored on servers located within a country. While most of the relevant regulations are implemented to protect personally identifiable data, other types of data, such as financial or business records, are also affected.
By participating in the survey, you can directly inform the Trade and Agriculture Directorate’s investigation of these regulations and its subsequent policy recommendations to the OECD’s 34 member governments.
We take the protection of information seriously. All responses are considered highly confidential, and will only be used for analytical purposes and any reporting will be at an aggregated level, so that no individual business could be identified.
We would appreciate your response by Friday 7 August, 2015. If you are aware of other businesses that may be interested in this questionnaire, please feel free to forward this email to them.
If you have any questions regarding this survey, please contact the OECD at firstname.lastname@example.org.
