Brazilian General Data Protection Law, LGPD enforcement will start in August 2021

After a number of postponements and many discussions about further delay, the Brazilian Lei Geral de Protecção de Dados Pessoais (General Data Protection Law, LGPD) is on the verge of entering into force. In a surprise move, the Brazilian Senate on Wednesday 26 August decided not to agree to a further postponement, but to let the law enter into application immediately. Enforcement of the law will start in August 2021.

While waiting for the official start sign of the law, this seems to be the right moment to take another look at the LGPD. When looking at the new Brazilian law, it is immediately clear that there is a fair amount of overlap between the LGPD and the GDPR.
