SAFE-BioPharma Receives Safe Harbor Certification

SAFE-BioPharma Association has certified compliance with the US Department of Commerce and European Union Safe Harbor requirements for the protection of personal data. The non-profit association developed and manages the global SAFE-BioPharma® digital identity and signature standard, used within the biopharmaceutical and healthcare industries.

To qualify, SAFE-BioPharma developed its privacy policy to comply with the E.U.’s Safe Harbor Principles. Safe Harbor Certification will enable SAFE-BioPharma to transfer personal data outside the E.U., expediting the flow of information between European clients and the United States. The certification recognizes that SAFE-BioPharma’s privacy and data security policies provide "adequate protection" for personal data from its European clients as required by the European Union's Data Protection Directive.

“Receiving Safe Harbor status assures SAFE-BioPharma member companies that use of the standard to manage digital identities and/or to apply digital signatures is consistent with E.U. regulations regarding data transfer and will further enhance our capabilities to better serve our European clients,” said Mollie Shields-Uehling, President and CEO, SAFE-BioPharma Association.
