Personal Data Protection Commission is established in Thailand 泰國個人資料保護委員會已成立

Personal Data Protection Act (for more information please refer to our article “Personal Data Protection Act in Thailand” at was published on May 27, 2019 in Thailand. Originally it would be effected in 2020, however, due to COVID-19, it is postponed to be effected on June 1, 2022. Thai government completed the establishment of Personal Data Protection Commission (PDPC) on January 18, 2022.

泰國個人資料保護法 (有關詳細資訊請參考我們之前的文章 “個資保護意識抬頭-泰國個資保護法於2020年生效”於2019年5月27日公布。一開始預計於2020年生效,但因為新冠病毒爆發延遲致2022年6月1日生效。泰國政府於2022年1月18日成立個人資料保護委員會(簡稱PDPC) 。

The PDPC consists of one chairperson, one vice-chairperson, five commission members, and nine honorary commission members. Once the committee is established, there should be clear guidance on how people can lodge a complaint when their data is misused. Companies and other organizations handling personal data are obliged to report leaked data within 72 hours and inform data owners.


The enforcement of Personal Data Protection Act has been postponed earlier, and many businesses had expressed concern that another extension would be forthcoming before the current enforcement date. However, the establishment of PDPC is a basic precondition to express that Personal Data Protection Act will be effective on June 1, 2022, and unlikely to be further postponed.

先前已延遲實施個人資料保護法,許多企業擔心在實施日期之前會再次延期。但是,PDPC 的成立是施行個人資料保護法的基本前提,表示個人資料保護法將於2022年6月1日生效,且不太可能再次延期。

Companies and other organizations that is not compliant with Personal Data Protection Act should evaluate their practices for handling and processing personal data in order to avoid violation before the full enforcement date.
