With the development of economic globalization and information globalization, the cross border flow of personal data has brought some challenges to national security and the privacy of data subjects, so it is necessary to regulate it. This paper mainly studies the legal system of regulating the cross border flow of personal data in the European Union. The rules for cross border transmission of data in GDRP provide for the specific circumstances in which personal data are transmitted to third countries or international organizations within its territory, limiting, to a certain extent, the cross border flow of personal data while protecting personal data. It has a far-reaching influence on the construction of the relevant legal system in many countries and regions. In addition, the EU-U.S Privacy Shield Framework also provides a new way to regulate the cross border flow of personal data. Through the analysis of EU's legal rules on cross border flow of personal data, some suggestions are put forward for China to regulate in this field: firstly, the legislation on cross border flow of personal data should be perfected to enhance the operability of the law; Secondly, we can strengthen international cooperation and actively participate in the formulation of international rules for cross border flow of personal data.
