For Accountability Agents

Accountability Agents perform a key role in the APEC Cross Border Privacy Rules (CBPR) System and the Privacy Recognition for Processors (PRP) System by certifying that the privacy policies and practices of participating companies are compliant with the CBPR and PRP Systems program requirements.
