Enforcement of the Malaysian Personal Data Protection Act 2010

In our earlier blog entry, we mentioned that Bernama reported that the Personal Data Protection Act 2010 (PDPA) will be enforced in June 2012 but this may not be correct in view of the Director General of Personal Data Protection Department’s (PDPD) statement.

We sought clarification with the PDPD and the PDPD informed us that “the newspaper reported that the Act [PDPA] is going to be enforce in June was based on the Secretary General’s closing ceremony speech in the evening eventhough the Minister did not state anything earlier. Despite of all that, it is best for us to wait for the Minister to make the announcement on the enforcement of the Act and notify in the Gazette “.

We look forward to the Minister’s announcement on the enforcement of the PDPA.
