Dear §a§ §b§

PL&B’s tables of 120 national data privacy laws
and 31 national draft laws now available

You can now buy the 5th edition of PL&B’s unique separate tables of data privacy laws and draft laws with a commentary by their compiler, Professor Graham Greenleaf, Privacy Laws & Business’s Asia-Pacific Editor.

The number of laws has increased by 10% in the last two years so that this 5th edition now lists 120 national data privacy laws and 31 national draft laws. By buying this special edition, you will be alerted to the countries where you need to take action.

The commentary

  • names the 11 countries with new laws and explains their major characteristics,
  • analyses trends regarding international data privacy agreements, such as those promoted by the African Union Convention and the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States, and 
  • provides full references and acknowledgements.

Everyone who buys this special edition will also receive in April an updated version with the second part of the commentary analysing the growth of the networks in which DPAs are involved.

The tables show for each jurisdiction

1. the name of the jurisdiction

2. the name of the law or draft law

3. the date of the original draft law and the date of the most recent version

4. the region to which the jurisdiction belongs

    bloc of five Latin American countries

6. whether the law covers the private sector, public sector or both

7. the name of the national Data Protection Authority (DPA)

8. the Data Protection Authority Association(s) to which the DPA belongs, such as the Global
    Privacy Enforcement Network
