OECD privacy guidelines - papers on their impact 30 years on, in USA, EU, Canada, Japan etc

Several OECD events were planned for the 30th anniversary in 2010 of the seminal 1980 OECD privacy guidelines, including an OECD roundtable in March 2010 on the impact of the guidelines.

Some helpful notes or papers from the conference are now available including:

There were also papers by representatives from various member countries - the links against the names below lead to their presentations, some more detailed than others, describing experiences with the guidelines in their own countries:

Jane Hamilton, Acting Director, Electronic Commerce Branch, Industry (Canada)
Fumio Shimpo, Assistant Professor, Graduate School of Media and Governance, Keio University (Japan)  -  slides
Blair Stewart, Assistant Commissioner, Office of the Privacy Commissioner (New Zealand)
David Smith, Deputy Commissioner, Office of the Information Commissioner (United Kingdom) [there's no copy of his presentation, unfortunately]
Hugh Stevenson, Deputy Director, Office of International Affairs, Federal Trade Commission  (United States)

And see also the views of US privacy advocate EPIC (Marc Rotenberg), and a paper on the Privacy Framework developed by the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation forum (APEC) as an example where the OECD Guidelines were used as a benchmark to draw up a privacy framework (Malcolm Crompton, Information Integrity Solutions Pty Ltd and Privacy Commissioner of Australia 1999‑2004).
