CMS Client Alert | December 2014

Requirement to process Russian citizens’ personal data inside Russia likely to come into effect on 1 September 2015


The law we reported on previously – which requires the personal data of Russian citizens to be stored and processed in databases located within Russia (the “Law”) – is expected to come into effect one year earlier than initially planned.

On 17 December 2014, the State Duma (the lower chamber of the Russian Parliament) passed a bill in the second and third readings, under which the Law is to enter into force on 1 September 2015 rather than on 1 September 2016.
