Last November, the Brazilian Data Protection Authority (ANPD) released its Regulatory Agenda for the 2023-2024, setting out its priority of issues for this coming period. Below we take a look at some of the most awaited issues, as well as setting out the full list of actions on the Authorities agenda for this Biennium.
Among the most topical issues on the agenda is the expected regulation and guidance on the application of administrative sanctions, which is a function allocated to the authority under Brazil’s data protection law (LGPD).
In particular, it is expected that the Authority will provide information and guidance on how administrative sanctions should be applied to violations of the law, as well as criteria for calculation of such fines.
Another key topic is the processing of data belonging to children and adolescents.
The ANPD has already provided a preliminary study in this area, which addressed, for example, the need to consider the potential impact of online platforms and games on the rights of children and adolescents.
