Video: Compliance Catalysts – PDPA Subordinate Regulations

Following the enactment of Thailand’s Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA) in May 2019, Tilleke & Gibbins’ dedicated data protection team in Bangkok has been committed to monitoring, participating in, and providing updates on the development of the new law and supporting legislation.

Following the first public hearing on subordinate regulations, held by the Office of the Personal Data Protection Committee (PDPC) in February 2021, the firm’s data protection team produced a video series called “Compliance Catalysts – PDPA Subordinate Regulations,” in order to provide easily accessible, bite-sized information on the key elements of the PDPA, the practical impact of the proposed regulations, and the requirements for business operators.

The series is available in both English and Thai, and you can watch every episode below.

 

Ep. 1: Criteria and Procedures for Requesting Consent from Data Subjects

During this episode, Athistha (Nop) Chitranukroh and Nopparat Lalitkomon provide an overview of consent requirements under the PDPA, discuss binding and non-binding consent forms, and look at the PDPC’s “negative list,” which exhibits unacceptable or invalid methods for requesting consent (e.g., broad or catch all consent requests).

Ep. 2: The Notification of the Purposes and Details of Personal Data Processing

In this episode, Nopparat Lalitkomon is joined by Auradee Wongsaroj to discuss notification requirements for data controllers. The video is divided into three sections:

  • Change of purposes for data collection after a subject has already been notified; and
  • Notification requirement exemptions.
