ACC Submits Comments on Proposed Data Protection Law in India

ACC Position: 

In late January, ACC, working with its India Corporate Counsel Forum and Compliance & Ethics Committee, submitted comments in response to the White Paper of the Committee of Experts on a Data Protection Framework for India. The committee was convened by the Government of India to study issues relating to data protection and make suggestions on principles to be considered for data protection laws in India. In its response, ACC focused on those data protection issues that affect in-house practice broadly, including recommendations to develop clear standards to regulate cross-border transfers of data that are easy to comply with and present minimal disruption to business and avoid policies that could disincentivize corporate compliance with new privacy requirements.
