On April 21, the United Commissions of Government and Legislative Studies of the Mexican Senate approved the General Data Protection Law Held by Regulated Subjects (source document in Spanish). The law will regulate the processing of personal data by all agencies of the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of the government that previously did not have a regulatory framework on the processing of personal data. The right to the protection of personal data will be limited only for reasons of national security, public order provisions, public health and safety, or to protect third-party rights.
