When Brazil's General Data Protection Law passed in August 2018, then-President Michel Temer vetoed sections of it, in particular, Articles 55 to 59, which constituted and organized the data protection authority. Executive Order n° 869, issued Dec. 27, 2018, establishes a DPA and extends the grace period for compliance to August 2020. The order also alters other sections of the LGPD, including changing the requirements for data protection officers, transparency and the sharing of health data. In this Privacy Tracker post, Renato Leite Monteiro, CIPP/E, CIPM, outlines the changes, noting that the executive order's "conversion into law is conditioned to the assessment of the National Congress within a period of 120 days."
