As DLA Piper confirm, "...a draft PRC Personal Information Protection Law (Draft PIPL) was published for consultation [in Oct 2020]. If passed, the Draft PIPL would be the first comprehensive national level personal information protection law in the PRC, creating binding compliance obligations previously considered recommended practice (under the Guidelines), and requiring organizations to comply with new compliance steps.". A panel of experts will discuss this draft law, how will this relate to China's neighbours and what the future may herald for Chinese Data Protection and Privacy.
