Singapore updates 2012 Personal Data Protection Act

Singapore passed amendments to its Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA) on Tuesday, in the first comprehensive review of the Act since its 2012 enactment.

The updated Act aims to strengthen consumer trust through organisational accountability as well as enhance effectiveness of enforcement, consumer autonomy and data use for innovation. Ministers believe it will allow organisations to keep pace with technological changes, and position Singapore as a key player in the digital economy.
