In this Privacy Tracker series, we look at laws from across the globe and match them up against the EU General Data Protection Regulation. The aim is to help you determine how much duplication of operational effort you might avoid as you move toward GDPR compliance and help focus your efforts. In this installment, Nicola Hermansson, CIPP/E, CIPT, EY NZ data privacy leader, and William Fussey, EY law privacy solicitor, compare key provisions of the New Zealand Privacy Act 1993 with the GDPR. The post outlines the 12 privacy principles in the New Zealand law, noting that many correlate reasonably well with the GDPR. However, there are a number of GDPR concepts without correlation, potentially leaving New Zealand organizations exposed.
