Argentina: AAIP publishes personal data protection bill

The Argentinian data protection authority ('AAIP') published, on 5 April 2023, its 2022 management report, which includes a new Personal Data Protection Bill that is largely in line with the draft bill released in November 2022. In particular, the bill provides a new definition of credit entities as entities that provide credit information to the Central Bank of the Argentine Republic. More specifically, the bill adds a new article regarding the publication of credit information, particularly that the Central Bank of the Argentine Republic will publish, within its competence, information provided by credit entities regarding compliance or non-compliance with monetary obligations in a comprehensive and transparent manner.

More generally, the AAIP noted that the report presented its 2022 to 2026 strategic plan, focusing on four strategic objectives, namely:

  • promoting and strengthening the exercise of citizens' rights to the protection of personal data and access to public information;
  • expanding regulatory and management capacities at the national and federal levels;
  • promote transparency and citizen participation to bring Argentina closer to the citizenry; and
  • expanding and strengthening the institutional capacities of the AAIP.
