Brazil: LGPD enters into force
Law No. 13.709 of 14 August 2018, General Personal Data Protection Law (as amended by Law No. 13.853 of 8 July 2019) ('LGPD') entered into force on 18 September 2020.
In particular, the President of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro, promulgated, on 17 September 2020, Law No. 14.058/2020 which validated Conversion Bill 34/2020, which resulted in the entry into force of the LGPD. Bolsonaro had 15 business days to validate Conversion Bill 34/2020, which was passed by the Senate of Brazil on 25 August 2020 and had rejected provisions passed by the Chamber of Deputies, which sought to postpone the entry into force of the LGPD to 31 December 2020.
The enforcement provisions of the LGPD are expected to enter into force on 1 August 2021, further to an additional law passed in June 2020.
