Keywords:China, law, covid-19
In May 2020, China’s National People’s Congress passed the PRC Civil Code, which introduced new provisions to protect privacy and personal information. About the same time, the new Information Security Technology – Personal Information Security Specification (GB/T 35273-2020; the Specification) was also introduced. When they come into effect on 1 January 2021, both laws will become the foundation for personal information protection in China, where interest in these rights has increased.
