Data Protection Leader

Uruguay: The role of the URCDP

Uruguay became, in 2008, one of the first countries in Latin America to pass a data protection law and is one of only two states in the region to be granted adequacy by the European Commission. This was partly as a result of the independent data protection authority created to enforce Uruguay’s data protection regime. In this article, Dr Ana Brian Nougrčres and Dr Alejandra Saiz analyse the role of the Uruguayan data protection authority (‘the URCDP’), its duties and competences, and provide an overview of its activities in 2017.
