A look at China’s draft Personal Information Protection Law

With measures to ensure privacy getting prioritized worldwide, many countries have framed relevant laws and regulations on personal information protection. On October 21, 2020, China released its draft Personal Information Protection Law (PIPL) for public consultation.

When the draft PIPL gets passed, it’ll be China’s central and universal governing law on protecting personal information. While no definitive timeline has been set for the final law, we discuss some of the key features of this important piece of draft legislation and how businesses (based in China and those engaged in commercial interactions with people living in China) should prepare ahead to ensure data privacy compliance.
