The Flanders-China Chamber of Commerce (FCCC) has the pleasure to invite you to a legal webinar focused on the new PRC Personal Information Protection Law (PIPL). Mr. Carl Li, Senior Partner at AllBright Law Offices, will discuss the impact of the new law on businesses operating in and with China.
This webinar will take place on October 6, 2021, at 10h00.
The PRC Personal Information Protection Law (PIPL), which will be effective from November 1, 2021, is the most important law in China regarding the protection of personal information and will impact almost every company in China. Together with the PRC Cybersecurity Law and the PRC Data Security Law, this law constitutes China's legal framework for data protection in much the same way as the GDPR, although there are some key differences. The PIPL sets out rules for the processing of personal information, cross-border transfer, individual rights, obligations of processors, responsibilities of authorities, and legal liabilities. Every company will need to put in place compliance measures either before or within a very limited time frame after the PIPL becomes law, in order to ensure that they are not at risk of non-compliance.
