Insight
In recent years, the rules on cross-border data transmission have been a constant concern of MNCs. The Measures for the Security Assessment of Cross-border Data Transmission, the Measures for the Standard Contract for the Cross-border Transmission of Personal Information, and other relevant regulations released during 2022 – 2023 provide MNCs with an outline as to how security assessments, filings of standard contract or personal information protection certification (“Three Mechanisms for Cross-border Data Transmission”) would be implemented. However, the Three Mechanisms for Cross-border Data Transmission also imposed a heavy compliance burden on MNCs.Further clarifications have been issued on 22 March 2024, when the Cyberspace Administration of China (“CAC”) released the Provisions on Promoting and Regulating Cross-border Data Transmission (“New Regulation on Cross-border Data Transmission”), together with the Guidelines on Declaring for the Security Assessment of Cross-border Data Transmission (Second Version) and the Guidelines on Filing of the Standard Contract for the Cross-border Transmission of Personal Information (Second Version) (collectively, “New Guidelines on Cross-border Data Transmission”).The New Regulation on Cross-border Data Transmission provides exemptions from some of the heaviest burden of the Three Mechanisms for Cross-border Data Transmission in respect of both under specific scenarios and also from a quantitative perspective. The New Guidelines on Cross-border Data Transmission clarifies and simplifies the methods, procedures and materials required for making an application for a security assessment and the filing of the standard contract.The New Regulation on Cross-border Data Transmission provides an updated process that will facilitate cross-border data transmissions. This will, to certain extent, simplify matters for MNCs when they carry out cross-border data transmission activities in their daily operations.The main issues MNCs need to be aware of under the New Regulation on Cross-border Data Transmission are as follows: corporate-mergers-and-acquisitions-corporate-compliance-system,digital-economy,telecommunications-media-entertainment-and-technology-data-protection-and-privacy
