Thailand Issues First Personal Data Protection Act | Dezan Shira & Associates

posted 2 years ago

Thailand’s first consolidated law on personal data protection, called the Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA), was initially signed in 2019 but will be enforced from June 1, 2022, after being postponed due to the pandemic.

The country has now joined its peers Singapore, Malaysia, and the Philippines in enacting data protection laws. The PDPA outlines the obligations of data controllers and processors to inform and request data owners of any collection, use, or disclosure of their personal information. Those found in violation of the law could be liable for civil and criminal fines. As such, the PDPA defines personal data as information that identifies a living person.
