CIPL/CEDIS-IDP Joint Project on Effective Implementation & Regulation under New Brazilian Data Protection Law (LGPD)
The “Effective Implementation and Regulation Under the New Brazilian Data Protection Law (LGPD)” project is a 14 months-long exclusive project jointly organised by CIPL and the Centro de Estudos de Direito, Internet e Sociedade of Instituto Brasiliense de Direito Público (CEDIS-IDP). Project participants include local and global privacy experts from leading companies, law firms, public sector, civil society and academia. We are organizing a series of workshops, webinars, special meetings, and publication of white papers.
The main goal of this project is to foster smart thinking and debates around data protection in Brazil – see the project goals outlined below for more details. If you would like to take part in this project, please email Giovanna Carloni (GCarloni@HuntonAK.com).
In August 2018, Brazil approved its first comprehensive data protection law – the LGPD, which will be applicable from August 2020. In December 2018, the former President of Brazil issued Provisional Measure No. 869/2018, which makes some amendments to the LGPD and importantly creates Brazil’s national data protection authority (ANDP). This leaves many organisations with approximately a 9 to 15 month window to assess the impact of the LGPD. It also leaves the Brazilian government with a short time-frame to establish an effective ANPD.
