Binding Corporate Rules

ABN AMRO has internal rules that regulate the international exchange of personal information within the group. These rules are called Binding Corporate Rules.


Why Binding Corporate Rules?

The Binding Corporate Rules stem from the European Data Protection Directive. The rules governing the protection of personal information are not the same in all countries. Consequently, the European legislator has set out rules on how personal information is to be handled by international organizations. These rules apply to the personal information of both clients and employees. ABN AMRO's Binding Corporate Rules have been approved by the Dutch Data Protection Authority and the relevant European Data Protection Supervisors.
