The Principles on Freedom of Expression and Privacy (the “Principles”) have been created to provide direction and guidance to the Information and Communications Technology (“ICT”) industry and its stakeholders in protecting and advancing the enjoyment of these human rights globally.
These Implementation Guidelines provide further details on how participating companies will put the Principles into practice. The purpose of this document is to:
Describe a set of actions which constitute compliance with the Principles.
Provide companies with guidance on how to implement the Principles.
As described in the accompanying Governance, Accountability and Learning Framework, each participating company will be assessed on their progress implementing the Principles after two years and annually thereafter.
