Substantial fines to be imposed for breaching the Russian personal data localisation rules

Japanese version

09/07/2019

On 13 June 2019, a bill was introduced in the State Duma of the Russian Federation to make it a finable offence in the Code on Administrative Violations to breach rules on the localisation of personal data of Russian citizens.

The proposed amendments will introduce liability for failure to comply with localisation rules with substantial fines ranging from RUB 2m (EUR 27,900) to RUB 6m (EUR 83,700), and for repeat violations from RUB 6m (EUR 83,700) to RUB 18m (EUR 251,100). According to the general rules, a repeat violation has occurred if the offender committed a second breach within one year from the deadline by which the fine for the first breach should have been paid.

Please find below the Japanese version of the update.
