Mexican legislators are currently preparing implementing regulations to formally bring into force the Mexican federal privacy statute by July this year.  Some provisions of the new law, such as provisions relating to data access rights, are expected to come into force by January 2012.  Reports are that Mexico is also aiming to secure a formal declaration of adequacy from the European Commission with respect to international data flows.  Such declaration would allow data controllers to freely export personal data from European borders to Mexico without the need to implement model transfer agreements or rely on derogations to the international transfer restriction under Directive 95/46/EC.
