Questionnaire regarding privacy and data protection legislation and practices

The General Assembly of the Organization of American States through its resolution AG/RES. 2661 on “Access to public information and personal data protection” instructed the Department of International Law “elaboration of a comparative study on the different legal systems, policies and enforcement mechanisms for the protection of personal data, including domestic legislation, regulation, and self-regulations with a view to exploring the possibility of a regional framework in this area.”

In order to comply with resolution AG/RES. 2661, the OAS Member States answered a questionnaire on Data Protection in terms of: laws, rules and constitutional regulations; legal mechanisms to enforce law; case law; cross-border cooperation, and Habeas Data.

The final study was presented to the Committee on Juridical and Political Affairs in April 2012.
