The law entered into force on 18 September 2020, except for its enforcement provisions, which are still scheduled to become effective on 1 August 2021. In addition, the structure of the Brazilian data protection authority (‘ANPD’) has been approved by President Bolsonaro, however, the appointment of its members is still awaited.
