Brazil Senate Approves Bill Delaying LGPD Enforcement

The Brazil Senate unanimously approved a bill today that would delay implementation of the Brazil General Law for Data Protection, or LGPD, until January 1, 2021 and enforcement of fines and penalties until August 1, 2021.

The LGPD is currently scheduled to take effect on August 15, 2020. Passed in August 2018, the LGPD is the first comprehensive general data protection law in Latin America to be modeled after the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”).
