China’s new Data Privacy & Data Security Laws

Personal Information Protection Law and China’s Data Privacy Law

The Personal Information Protection Law, or PIPL, is China’s first comprehensive data protection legislation. Its goals are to protect the personal information rights and interests of data subjects by regulating personal information handling activities.

In effect since November 1, 2021, the PIPL is similar to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR). However, compared to earlier legislation on data protection issues, the PIPL will have a much bigger impact on local and international businesses operating in China.
