Data Protection: FCCPC, NDPB establish joint mutual enforcement desk


 

The Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission, FCCPC and Nigeria Data Protection Bureau, NDPB have established a Joint Mutual Enforcement Desk, JED as part of efforts by Federal Government to protect and regulate data, in furtherance of prevailing National and International instruments as well as protocols to protect Nigerians.

 

Considering the mutuality of both agencies’ objectives and mandates, the Commission and Bureau on Tuesday, May 17, 2022 established the JED as part of their collaboration.

 

Both agencies acknowledge digital markets, strengthen economies and can promote shared prosperity, where properly regulated.

 

The JED will address crucial issues of data protection and the rights of data subjects to ensure consumers and businesses derive the protection and benefits that are inherent in the economic expansion that technology and digital markets otherwise enhance.

 

Fresh Angle International understands that in 2019, the Federal Government enacted the Nigeria Data Protection Regulation, NDPR and in February 2022, the Nigeria Data Protection Bureau, was created as an enforcement mechanism of the NDPR.

 

Key mandates of the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (Commission) include protection of consumers, their privacy, enforcement of enactments (including NDPR) for such protection; as well as regulating competition, including appropriation of data.
