Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has signed a bill creating a federal agency to guarantee data privacy. The President used his line-item veto power to make 14 minor alterations in the bill, dealing mainly with definitions of legal terms and certain attributes of the new agency. The President’s message was published Tuesday in Brazil’s Federal Register. The legislation creates a National Data Protection Authority (ANPD), designed to enforce terms of a constitutional amendment and accompanying legislation guaranteeing the privacy of digital and other personal data.
