Singapore released proposed personal data protection bill

The Ministry of Information, Communications and the Arts (MICA) released the proposed personal data protection bill on 19 March and invited comments from the public ending 30 April. MICA conducted two public consultations on the proposed data protection (DP) regime as well as the Do-Not-Call Registry (DNC) in 2011. The DP regime covers the scope of the proposed DP law; related rules on use, collection, disclosure and transfer of personal data outside Singapore; data accuracy; retention of personal data, and penalty and enforcement-related matters.
