Singapore’s Data Protection Bill was passed in Parliament yesterday, after a lengthy debate. Organisations will have 18 months to adjust to the new Personal Data Protection Act, starting January 2013 before rules come into force (not 2 years).
The ‘Do Not Call’ register will be set up in early 2014.
See here for commentary on the draft. More details and analysis of Act as passed will follow.
