THE NEW OECD PRINCIPLES ON GOVERNMENT ACCESS TO PERSONAL DATA HELD BY PRIVATE SECTOR ENTITIES

On 10 January, a post on Lawfare described the Principles as a “Gentlemen’s’ Agreement”, and which aim to document the range of protections member government already have in place for individuals’ data they access.  Examining the declaration, the post says that it capped an unusual 2-year negotiation among national security and law enforcement officials to capture the “significant commonalities” characterising how “rule-of-law democratic systems” regulate their access to personal data in the possession of private-sector entities such as communications companies.  The post points out that the OECD notes that it is “the first intergovernmental agreement” on the subject.
