Event Details

Dear Members and Friends of SwissCham,

SwissCham, in collaboration with the Swiss-Chinese Chamber of Commerce, is delighted to invite you to the webinar "Key points for compliance with China's Personal Information Protection Law (PIPL)" co-organized with Bonnard Lawson on February 10.

As data privacy is getting prioritized worldwide, many countries have started to frame relevant laws and regulations in recent years on personal information protection like GDPR for Europe. The Personal Information Protection Law (PIPL) in China entered into force on 1 November 2021.

The interpretation of a new law is always a challenge for companies going to China. According to Jianping Mei (associate of Bonnard Lawson in Lausanne) and Vanessa Albuquerque (associate of Bonnard Lawson in Shanghai), companies going to China would need a general understanding of the regulatory environment of PIPL's release, PIPL's main characteristics as well as the difference between PIPL and GDPR to make a good compliance strategy in China.

At the end of the webinar, you will have a better understanding of the following topics:

  1. Regulatory background for promulgating PIPL in China
  2. PIPL main features
  3. Principal differences between PIPL and GDPR
  4. General Advice on compliance with PIPL under practical circumstances
  5. Key points on compliance with PIPL in China


中国瑞士商会与瑞士协会合作,诚邀您参加2月20日与Bonnard Lawson共同举办的"遵守中国个人信息保护法(PIPL)要点"网络研讨会。

随着数据隐私在全球范围内越来越受到重视,许多国家近年来已开始制定有关个人信息保护的相关法律法规,例如欧洲的GDPR。 中国《个人信息保护法》(PIPL)于 2021 年 11 月 1 日生效。

对进入中国的企业来说,对新法律的解读始终是一个挑战。据Jianping Mei(Bonnard Lawson 洛桑合伙人)和 Vanessa Albuquerque(Bonnard Lawson 上海合伙人)表示,去中国的公司需要大致了解 PIPL 发布的监管环境、主要特点以及 PIPL 和 GDPR 的区别,以便在中国制定良好的合规策略。


  1. 中国颁布PIPL的监管背景
  2. PIPL主要特点
  3. PIPL 和 GDPR 的主要区别
  4. 在实际情况下遵守 PIPL 的一般建议
  5. 遵守中国PIPL的要点

With best regards,

Your SwissCham Team
