BEIJING (Reuters) – China’s cyberspace regulator on Friday issued rules to facilitate and regulate cross-border data flow, clarifying the reporting standards for security assessments of important data exports.

Data collected and generated in activities such as international trade and cross-border transportation that do not contain personal information or important data will be exempt from declaration, the regulator said.
