TRUSTe, the leading global data privacy management (DPM) company, today announced that the Merck & Co., Inc. (Merck) privacy program is compliant with the requirements of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Cross Border Privacy Rules (CBPR) System. Merck is the first healthcare company in the world, and the second multinational company, to achieve this certification via voluntary and enforceable codes of conduct adopted by participating businesses.

“While there are many variations in the privacy laws that apply to our business in different countries around the world, APEC CBPR certification is an important way for Merck to demonstrate to our customers, to patients and other stakeholders that we are committed to our privacy values and to accountable privacy practices in every region of the world” said Hilary Wandall, chief privacy officer for Merck.

The APEC CBPR System is a self-regulatory initiative that addresses cross border data flows between the United States and other APEC Member Economies, through voluntary and enforceable codes of conduct adopted by participating businesses. Following a review of Merck’s privacy policy and practices, TRUSTe, the first Accountability Agent for the APEC privacy standard, certified that Merck is CBPR compliant.

“We partnered with Merck to review their data privacy management practices and applaud their milestone achievement as the first healthcare company to receive certification under the APEC CBPR system,” said Chris Babel, CEO for TRUSTe. “The safe handling of consumers’ personal information is crucial for the success of businesses as they enter new markets with different privacy frameworks. We continue to support efforts, such as at the APEC CBPR system, to further the interoperability of privacy frameworks worldwide."
