The Personal Data Protection Commission of Singapore (PDPC) has released its response to feedback received from a public consultation launched in July 2017 on Approaches to Managing Personal Data in the Digital Economy.
The PDPC sought views on the relevance of other bases for collecting, using and disclosing personal data under the Personal Data Protection Act 2012 (PDPA), namely the proposed ‘Notification of Purpose’ and ‘Legal or Business Purpose’ approaches. PDPC also proposed a mandatory data breach notification regime for notification of data breaches to PDPC and affected individuals under the PDPA. These proposals are part of the PDPC’s review of the PDPA.
The consultation closed on 5 October 2017 with 68 responses from consumers and organisations (including business associations) representing various sectors. Now the PDPC has released a document providing its responses to the key matters raised by respondents.
