China’s new Personal Information Protection Law
The webinar has now taken place, please complete our form if you would like to be sent a copy of the webinar recording.
Mainland China’s new Personal Information Protection Law came into effect on 1 November 2021, and represents mainland China’s first broad-based comprehensive information privacy law. The Law is of interest to many Hong Kong businesses, because it applies to data processing activities carried out outside of mainland China if they are for the purpose of offering products or services to, or analysing and assessing the behaviour of, individuals located in mainland China. While the Law is similar in some respects to Hong Kong’s Personal Data Privacy Ordinance or Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation, it has a number of unique features which pose compliance challenges. Nicholas Blackmore, Special Counsel will provide a guided tour of the Law and its most important features for Hong Kong businesses.
CPD points have been applied for and, if approved, will be accredited by The Law Society of Hong Kong.
