On September 20, 2022, the Indonesian Parliament ratified the Personal Data Protection Bill (PDPB). Officially known as the Personal Data Protection Law (PDPL), it aims to provide Indonesians the same degree of data protection as other major data privacy regulations.

The law will have an extraterritorial application for international organizations that handle Indonesian citizens’ data or perform data processing acts that have consequences within Indonesia or in relation to Indonesian citizens. Processing involves collecting, analyzing, storing, transferring, or deleting personal data belonging to Indonesian citizens.

It places major obligations upon organizations to ensure their activities comply with the law’s provisions. The PDPL provides a transition period of two years for both data controllers and data processors to adjust their data handling and processing methods in accordance with the new law.

The PDPL will formally come into effect on a date set by the Minister of State Secretariat, following which organizations subject to the PDPL will have two years to ensure compliance with the law.
