(Fully booked) BDO Webinar: Introduction on PRC’s data privacy laws and regulations

Date: 28 January 2021
Time: 15:00 - 16:00


  • Summary

Organisations may have to collect and use personal data for operating their business activities in Mainland China. Unlike Hong Kong (the PDPO) or other places such as the EU territories (the GDPR), PRC does not have a single and consolidated set of data privacy law which is currently in force. Its data privacy related laws and regulations are scattered around different pieces of existing legislations (eg 網絡安全法, 電子商務法 & 兒童個人信息網絡保護規定).

But with the issuance of the Draft Personal Information Protection Law in October 2020, there is a possibility that PRC may also have its single set of legislation which comprehensively regulates the protection of personal data in the near future.      

Through this webinar, we will give you a general introduction on some of the existing data privacy related laws and regulations as well as the Draft Personal Information Protection Law in PRC.
