International Barriers to Data Flows: Background Report. Prepared for the Use of the Committee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce, House of Representatives, and Its Subcommittee on Communications, Ninety-Sixth Congress, First Session.
Congress of the U. S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce.
This document is a staff study on a potentially major problem in international communications: the erection of international barriers to the free flow of data communications. Background and analysis are provided on (1) the European computer/communications industry; (2) national privacy laws of Sweden, Norway and Denmark, West Germany, France, Great Britain, and the United States; and (3) transborder data flows--major issues and action in international organizations, i.e., the United Nations, Nordic Council, Council of Europe, European Economic Community, and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. A framework for future consideration concludes the report. (JD)
