Tuya Smart Becomes the World's First Company to Earn Europrivacy GDPR Certification
May 21, 2024

Tuya Smart (NYSE: TUYA, HKEX: 2391), a global cloud platform service provider, was invited to attend the 2024 Cyber Security Summit held by TÜV SÜD in Shenzhen, where it was awarded the prestigious Europrivacy GDPR certificate on site. This certification, currently the only approved GDPR compliance standard across the entire European Union, is hugely significant in the field of data protection in Europe. Earning this certification indicates that Tuya complies with the strict requirements of European data protection regulations, solidifying its position as a global leader in data protection and privacy.

Europrivacy GDPR is a certification scheme developed by the H2020 European Research Project, jointly funded by the European Commission and Switzerland. Designed to evaluate whether businesses strictly comply with GDPR and related data laws across various countries. As the only data protection seal currently approved for use across the European Union, Europrivacy GDPR offers an authoritative and reliable compliance verification mechanism for both businesses and public administrations.

At the event, Zhishang Xia, Senior Compliance Expert of Tuya Smart, delivered a keynote speech titled "Practical Implementation of Tuya Privacy Compliance System Construction." He stated, "We are delighted that Tuya has become the world's first enterprise to obtain the Europrivacy GDPR certification. We have been closely monitoring the development of relevant laws and regulations, and promoting the construction and implementation of our own privacy compliance system with high standards and strict requirements. This certification fully demonstrates Tuya's outstanding strength and efforts in the field of global data protection and privacy protection. In the future, Tuya will continue to provide users with safer and smarter services, accelerating the healthy and safe development of the industry."

Mr. Dirk von Wahl, CEO of North Asia at TÜV SÜD, and Mr. Sudhir Ethiraj, Head of Cyber Security Office (CSO) at TÜV SÜD and Cyber Security Business Manager of the Headquarters Management Services Department, jointly awarded the certificate to Tuya. Longwei Liu, Chief Information Security Officer of Tuya Smart, accepted this honor on behalf of the company. Additionally, TÜV SÜD partner TAM Cert. delivered their congratulations on Tuya's achievement of the EuroPrivacy GDPR certification via video.

Mr. Dirk von Wahl stated, "TÜV SÜD will stay ahead of the curve, continuously studying evolving cybersecurity regulations, ensuring compliance with industry standards and best practices, mitigating risks across various industries, and enhancing overall cybersecurity. We believe that protecting the digital world is protecting our future. At this event, TÜV SÜD, in partnership with TAM Cert., will leverage our professional expertise in EU data protection regulatory standards review to support the implementation of Tuya's privacy compliance system. The three parties have witnessed Tuya's persistent pursuit and unwavering efforts in information security and privacy protection, and we are genuinely pleased with Tuya's outstanding achievements."

The close cooperation between TÜV SÜD and Tuya in information security sets a model for Chinese companies’ overseas compliance. In 2021, TÜV SÜD signed a long-term cooperation agreement with Tuya, deepening their collaboration in testing, training, auditing, and other areas to jointly provide more reliable information security guarantees for global customers. In 2022, Tuya's CBU communication module passed network security testing based on the NISTIR 8259A standard and received a test report from TÜV SÜD, which aligned with US standards, further advancing the information security of intelligent devices throughout their lifecycle.

Looking ahead, Tuya will continue to deepen its exploration and practice in the integration and development of AI technologies. In collaboration with TÜV SÜD, Tuya aims to provide customers and end-users with more comprehensive information security guarantees, thereby promoting the stable, sustainable and safe development of the intelligent industry.
