The Brazilian National Data Protection Authority (ANPD) has submitted for public consultation, until September 15, 2022, the draft resolution that approves the Regulation of Dosimetry and Application of Administrative Penalties.

The purpose of the regulation is to complement Resolution CD/ANPD No. 1 of 2021, which determines the Inspection Process and the Administrative Sanctioning Process of the ANPD. The authority’s main aim is to promote the effectiveness of the administrative sanctions provided for in the LGPD by setting a methodology for applying the sanctions, with clear parameters and criteria.

The methodology adopted by the ANPD for the application of sanctions will be crucial to understanding the infractions the agency considers most serious and the most important compliance measures for business. In light of this, our Intellectual Property and Data Privacy team has prepared a document with further information on the new regulation.
