The EU GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) has been effective since 25 May 2018. According to GDPR, Hong Kong businesses working with EU companies processing their personal data must take measures to ensure that transfers of GDPR-protected personal data comply with the above requirements. Organisations in non-compliance may face heavy fines. For details of the GDPR, please refer to HKTDC Research website.

The Office of the Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data (PCPD) also has lots of resources on this subject. You may wish to learn how to preserve your best interest through PCDC’s article on “How Hong Kong Businesses Should Prepare for the EU General Data Protection” (published on 3 April 2018). The PCPD’s Hotline: 2827 2827.

In order to raise the awareness amongst organisations / businesses in Hong Kong of the possible impact of the new regulatory framework for data protection in the European Union, HKTDC will organize a public seminar to invite experts to share what the Hong Kong SMEs should know to comply the latest EU requirement.
