Brazilian Senate throws out delay to new data protection law

In a surprise move, the Brazilian Senate on Wednesday rolled back a planned Presidential postponement of Brazil’s new data protection law, originally scheduled to become effective on August 14 2020, but which had been delayed until May 2021.

Passed in 2018, Brazil’s new data protection law – Lei Geral de Proteção de Dados Pessoais, or “LGPD” – had been delayed by President Bolsonaro by a Provisional Measure, but the Measure had to be approved by August 27 by both houses of Congress. A proposal had been made to change the date once more, to December 31 2020, but instead, the Senate overruled any delays at all.
