Personal information protection of consumer in China


In China, currently there is no state law specialized in personal information protection.

However, the government has been endeavoring to enhance such protection in various levels of laws and regulations, such as the PRC Cyber Security Law recently promulgated by the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress which will come into force on June 1, 2017, the PRC Law on the Protection of Consumer Rights and Interests (“Consumer Protection Law”), the Provisions on Protection of Personal Information of Telecommunication and Internet Users released by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (“Order 24”) and the Decision of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress on Strengthening Network Information Protection (“Strengthening Decision”).
