Cette décision concrétise l'engagement pris en 1999 par le Canada et l'UE dans leur déclaration conjointe sur le commerce électronique et la société de l'information mondiale. Les deux parties ont promis de travailler ensemble à instaurer la confiance dans le commerce électronique international et à assurer la libre circulation des données personnelles sur la base de normes strictes en matière de protection.
