Law: There is no general personal data protection law.

Regulator: There is no data protection authority.

Summary: While there is no general data protection law in Cambodia, there have been recent legislative developments addressing relevant areas. In particular, the E-Commerce Law (only available in Khmer here) and the Consumer Protection Law (only available in Khmer here), both enacted on 2 November 2019, regulate the storage of electronic data and establish requirements for consent and the protection of consumer rights in certain circumstances. These laws can be considered indicative of an increasing focus on digital trade and commerce within the jurisdiction, and they are expected to be accompanied by a competition law that is currently in a draft stage. A draft cybercrime law is also in development that would introduce further measures to supervise the online environment.
