Newsletter 2015.13 – Draft Bill of Data Protection Law gains momentum
As reported in our newsletter #4 (March 2015), Brazilian Ministry of Justice published a Draft Bill of Law concerning Data Protection. Following a public debate held online from its publication in January until late July, the Draft Bill received more than 2,000 suggestions, duly studied by the Ministry of Justice. After a short period of adjustments, an enhanced version of the Draft Bill was presented on October 20, 2015.
Formally, there was a reordering of the sections, which turned the text more clear and coherent from a systematic perspective, as well as a thorough reanalysis of the terminology. On its essence, the new text partially softens polemic issues of the original version, without losing its coercive strength.
Please find below some of the important changes verified in the new version of the Draft Bill:
