Taiwan Ministry of Justice Considers ‘Right to be Forgotten and of Erasure’

Although Taiwan’s long-awaited Personal Information Privacy Act (PIPA) is not yet in force, the Chinese-language United Daily News reports that the Ministry of Justice is already planning to revise it.

According to the UDN,  Chen Wei-lian, the director of the Ministry’s Department of Legal Affairs, recently led a delegation to the European Union to learn about  efforts to protect personal information in response to social media and cloud computing.

Ministry of Justice officials are suggesting that the right to be forgotten and of erasure be added to the Personal Information Act. This right is included in the EU’s draft General Data Protection Regulation announced in January of this year.

The Ministry is reportedly on track in its preparations for the PIPA to take  effect in October and is expected to designate the agencies that will administer the PIPA with respect to specific industries by the end of this month.
