The European GDPR and China – data and privacy in the EU/China relationship

On May 4, 2016, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was published, and it became effective on EU member states on May 25, 2018. The GDPR was designed to reshape the approach to data protection across the EU and to protect the privacy of its citizens.

On June 1, 2017, the China Cyber Security Law (CSL) became in effect, and a number of affiliated regulations and implementation rules of the CSL were published shortly thereafter.

The GDPR affects IT and business practices of EU-based companies as well as their Chinese subsidiaries. Chinese subsidiaries of EU-based company are facing challenges under the CSL. How can companies navigate these fast paced changes in China and the EU? Can European companies duplicate their existing data practices under the GDPR in Chinese subsidiaries under the CSL? What are some of the recent developments and updates to both laws?

During this afternoon seminar, Roan Lamp from De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek and Dan Xu from Da Wo Law Firm will discuss these subjects. The aim is to identify best practices and sustainable approaches regarding GDPR and CSL both in China and the EU.
