Office of the Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data 25th Anniversary Event -
Webinar on "The Personal Information Protection Law of the Mainland"

Office of the Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data 25th Anniversary Event

The Personal Information Protection Law (PIPL), the first piece of legislation in the Mainland dedicated to the protection of personal information, was passed by the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress on 20 August 2021 and will come into effect on 1 November 2021. The PIPL marks a new milestone in the protection of individual’s right to privacy and personal information in the Mainland. As Hong Kong’s economy and daily life are closely intertwined with the Mainland, the transfer of personal information between the two places takes place from time to time. Local enterprises therefore have a need to know and understand the provisions of the PIPL.

Against this background, the Office of the Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data (PCPD), supported by the City University of Hong Kong School of Law, organises this webinar at which the Mainland’s renowned expert on civil law and seasoned legal practitioner will explain the contents and features of the PIPL to participants, so as to assist enterprises understand the new law, and prepare themselves for compliance. The webinar is also one of the celebratory events of the PCPD’s 25th Anniversary.

Enrolment is on a first-come-first-served basis.
