Download: AIC Submits Recommendations on Singapore’s PDPC Discussion Paper on Data Portability

Asia Internet Coalition (AIC) submits its recommendations to the Personal Data Protection Commission (PDPC) and the Competition and Consumer Commission of Singapore (CCCS) on the Discussion Paper on Data Portability. We commend the government’s efforts on developing the Discussion Paper, with an aim to discuss the impact and benefits of a data portability requirement for business innovation, market competition and consumers. The issue of data portability and data flows is at a unique crossroad between data protection and competition regulations and should not be considered in isolation. Both perspectives should be taken into consideration when implementing a data portability requirement and determining the optimal approach to reaping maximum benefits from such a requirement while keeping costs manageable.
