Chinese Taipei Joins the Global CAPE to Facilitate Cross-Border Cooperation in the Enforcement of Data Protection and Privacy Laws with International Partners

To enhance the protection of personal data, the Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MOTC) applied to join the Global Cooperation Arrangement for Privacy Enforcement (Global CAPE) at the end of 2023. In March, 2024, notice of the verification and approval of the application was received from the administrator of the Global CAPE—the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan. In the future, strengthened multinational cooperation in the enforcement of data protection and privacy laws with international partners can be expected as a result of this agreement, enhancing personal data protection in Taiwan.

The Global Cross-Border Privacy Rules (CBPR) Forum endeavors to promote trusted data flows and to eliminate unnecessary barriers in digital trade, and Chinese Taipei serves as one of the founding members of the Forum. As digitalization continues to accelerate around the globe, demand for international data transmission has increased sharply. Personal data infringement often involves actions beyond borders, requiring assistance and cooperation between jurisdictions from different nations to effectively combat criminal activities and reduce infringement. For this reason, the Global CBPR Forum published the Global CAPE in October, 2023 and invited privacy enforcement authorities (PEAs) from different nations in addition to those of Forum members to facilitate law enforcement cooperation around the world.

In addition to Chinese Taipei, other jurisdictions in the Global CAPE include the United States, Japan, Canada, the United Kingdom, South Korea, the Philippines, Singapore, Mexico, Dubai International Financial Centre, and Bermuda. This opens up opportunities for Taiwan’s PEAs to work with international partners on overseas law enforcement regarding privacy complaints, data protection, information sharing, and professional exchanges. Such collaboration will add to the protection of information privacy and align all stakeholders’ laws regulations with international standards. This will help foster cross-border digital trade and boosting Taiwan’s digital economy.
