Professor Suzanne Rab was interviewed on BBC’s Breakfast Business Briefing where she spoke about China’s new Personal Information Protection Law which came into force on 1 September. She explained the impact of the new measures and its key differences when compared with its EU counterpart under the General Data Protection Regulation.
Among the more stringent rules are requirements for data localisation within China and more onerous obligations on large scale consumer-facing platforms. Specific and additional consents will be needed if a company wants to transfer personal data outside of China. Enforcement is expected to be tough, with penalties of up to 5% of annual turnover, suspension of business activities and being banned from doing business in China.
