Abstract: Let A and B be unital, generating linear subspaces of $ {C^ \ast }$-algebras $ \mathcal{A}$ and $ \mathcal{B}$, respectively. If either $ \mathcal{A}$ or $ \mathcal{B}$ is a GCR algebra, then the set of boundary representations for $ A \otimes B$ can be identified with the Cartesian product of the boundary representations for A with the boundary representations for B.
