The LGPD comes into force in August 2020. It reflects a greater concern with the data protection subject, and it’s inspired by the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Just like the GDPR, this Brazilian law applies penalties to companies that fail to comply with the rules.
Below are the LGPD’s administrative sanctions:
- warning, with an indication of a deadline for the adoption of corrective measures;
- fine of up to 2% of the billing of the private law entity, group or conglomerate in Brazil in its last fiscal year, excluding taxes, limited to R$ 50 million per infringement;
- daily fine, considering the total limit above;
- publication of the infringement;
- blocking of personal data referred to in the violation until its regularization;
- deletion of personal data related to the infringement.
The strict sanctions introduced by law, from financial penalties to reputational consequences, underpin the entire market movement towards LGPD compliance.
The National Data Protection Authority (ANPD) was established to oversee compliances and, it’s responsible for monitoring and imposing sanctions outlined in the law.
The main functions of the ANPD are:
- Establishment of technical standards;
- Preparation of Impact Reports,
- Supervision and enforcement of sanctions, dissemination, and education activities about the LGPD.
