Safe Harbor vs Binding Corporate Rules

Binding Corporate Rules (BCRs) are often used as an alternative to participation in the US-EU Safe Harbor program.

The cost of BCRs can be prohibitive, usually starting at approximately $80,000 and taking approximately 12 months to complete.

Furthermore, with the decline in the Safe Harbor program, and the creation of Privacy Shield, BCRs are now seemed as an older mechanism of approval, with a number of EU data protection agencies questioning its validity.
