The Privacy Act (1993, updated 2020)
In June 2020, New Zealand’s parliament passed the country’s Privacy Bill, which will update the country’s data protection practices for the first time in more than a generation.
The bill, which replaces the 1993 Privacy Act, includes GDPR-like measures such as data breach reporting requirements and increased fines for non-compliance.
The extraterritorial scope of the Privacy Act means that overseas businesses or organizations carrying on business in New Zealand will be subject to the Act’s privacy obligations, even if they do not have a physical presence in New Zealand. This will particularly affect online businesses.
