On this topic, the Inter-American Juridical Committee adopted in 2005 a proposal on OAS Principles on Privacy and Personal Data Protection with annotations. However, in 2018, the General Assembly requested the Committee that "it begins updating the Principles on Protection of Personal Data, bearing in mind how such data have evolved," resolution AG/RES. 2926 (XLVIII-O/18).
