On 21 May 2020, the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) enacted DIFC Law No. 5/2020 Data Protection Law. The Law reflects the best practices from various international data protection laws and as such introduces several significant obligations for both controllers and processors that are either established in the DIFC or are undertaking processing in the DIFC. The DIFC has also issued the Data Protection Regulations 2020 (Regulations) which provide additional detail on certain aspects of DIFC Law No. 5/2020.
The DIFC Data Protection Law and the Regulations came into force on 1 July 2020, with a transition period of three months until 1 October 2020 for businesses to implement the requirements of the law.
