Download: AIC Submits Comments on Indonesia’s Personal Data Protection Draft Bill

AIC has submitted comments on Indonesia’s Personal Data Protection Draft Bill to the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology (KOMINFO). We commend the Ministry on formulating the Draft Bill that was disclosed to the public in February 2019. We also understand the government’s intention to place regulatory frameworks to protect individual’s personal data, especially those that are transmitted through the electronic system. While we support the government’s intent in proposing this regulatory framework, we do have significant concerns about the scope and impact of some of the provisions, particularly related to the extra-territorial effect, distribution of responsibilities between the parties involved, and data subject rights.
