What is the LGPD?
The LGPD is a data protection law in Brazil, the provisions of which are comparable to the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The LGPD places requirements on businesses relating to the protection of personal data of data subjects in Brazil.
Data controllers that fall under the scope of the LGPD are required to appoint a Data Protection Officer (DPO), ensure they have legal bases for the processing of personal data, and have public policies relating to how they collect, process, and store personal data, among other things.
The LGPD also includes provisions for data breach notifications, the processing of sensitive personal data, and data subject rights such as the right to access, deletion, and data portability.
Compliance with the provisions of the LGPD is overseen by the Autoridade Nacional de Proteção de Dados (ANPD). The ANPD is tasked with investigating non-compliance, handling complaints lodged by data subjects, and promoting public awareness of the law.
When does the LGPD come into effect in Brazil?
The LGPD entered into effect on September 18, 2020, and penalties and administrative sanctions became enforceable on August 1, 2021.
