On this week of Serious Privacy, Paul Breitbarth and K Royal discuss the new China Personal Information Protection Law (PIPL) that was adopted on 20 August. This new omnibus data protection law will enter into force on 1 November 2021, without a transition period to comply. 73 days between adoption and entry into force is a very short deadline for compliance, especially for a wide-ranging and complex law such as the PIPL. Although many details remain unclear for the time being, during this week’s episode, your hosts will try to guide you through the main characteristics of the new Chinese data protection law.
