Regulation of Cross-Border Transfers of Personal Data in Asia (May 2018)

by Dr Clarisse Girot (general editor)

The Compendium comprises 14 reports (Jurisdictional Reports) prepared by the Jurisdictional Reporters on the regulation of cross-border transfers of personal data in 14 Asian jurisdictions.

The first of its kind in Asia, the Compendium provides a holistic study of the regulation of data transfers in these different jurisdictions, which goes beyond a mere study of data transfer provisions in Asian data privacy laws to address the wider spectrum of issues that have an impact on the legal framework of cross-border data flows. It is designed for governments, data privacy regulators, law practitioners and industry, in Asia and beyond, to understand the scope, the operation and the implementation of regulations applicable to data transfers and data localisation requirements in the region.

On 2 December 2019, ABLI published of the Chinese translation of the Compendium. The translation was made possible with contribution of Peking University and a network of senior data protection officers in China.
