You're reading: LIOU asks president to veto amendments to law on personal data protection
on social media

According to a press release from LIOU, the state body on the protection of personal data is commissioned to fulfill technical regulation in personal data protection, elaborate the standards and the demands for the protection of personal data in information and telecommunication systems, and assess the conformity of protection systems to the information these systems contain.

However, according to the LIOU, the regulation cannot be a tool for the additional protection of personal data during processing. Moreover, the introduction of such a regulation will cause extra pressure and financial expenses of business entities if they meet all of the demands of the law “On the protection of the personal data”, and will not protect human rights.

“We think the adoption of this law in such wording, despite numerous plus points, contains serious obstacles to entrepreneurship in Ukraine, creating a serious threat of the appearance of unreasonable additional financial and organizational expenses for businesses, as well as contradicting international standards regarding personal data protection, and the norms of the Ukrainian legislation,” the LIOU letter read.
