Personal Data Protection (PDP) Bill 2009

By: Sonny Zulhuda

This November 2009 is marked with the tabling of a long-awaited law in the Parliament of Malaysia: the Personal Data Protection (PDP) Bill 2009. The complete draft can be obtained from the Parliament’s Website. Professor Abu Bakar Munir from University of Malaya has shared with us his views on the overview of the law. My further comments will also follow in due course.

This is a good news for Malaysian public. The days full with series of unsolicited calls and mails from marketers may in the near future be counted. We hope for the best to come out from this legislative exercise. Good luck MPs!

Note: for a related law on credit reporting agencies, you can check another draft Bill on Credit Reporting Agencies Bill from the Parliament’s website.
