A new measure amending Brazil’s LGPD regarding the National Data Protection Authority (ANPD) has been signed by the Brazil President and awaits final approval from the Chamber of Deputies and Federal Senate. This would give the ANPD more independence in alignment with government policies and other international regulations.
The provisional measure will allow the ANPD technical and decision-making autonomy. They will be given their own assets and their own headquarters and jurisdiction in the Federal District.
This new independence will be aligned with government policies and programs such as facilitating international trade. Meaning the LGPD will be more like other similar regulatory regimes around the world. It will therefore align better with international best practices. This will improve Brazil’s condition for entry into international organizations and blocs such as the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.
