It is normative only in respect of international or trans-jurisdictional exchange of personal health data. However it can be informative with respect to the protection of health information within national/jurisdictional boundaries and provide assistance to national or jurisdictional bodies involved in the development and implementation of data protection principles.
ISO 22857:2013 covers both the data protection principles that apply to international or trans-jurisdictional transfers and the security policy which an organization adopts to ensure compliance with those principles.
ISO 22857:2013 aims to facilitate international and trans-jurisdictional health-related applications involving the transfer of personal health data.
