Russia Increases Fines for Breaching Personal Data Collection Regulations

In attempt to further mitigate the consequences of the pandemic, the Russian government has increased the fines in a few areas. From March 27, 2021 administrative penalties for the violation of personal data regulations have doubled. Thus, from now on, the collection of personal data without prior receipt of a written consent from the owner may cost a legal entity up to 150,000 rubles. In case of repeated offense, the fine will amount to 500,000 rubles. These amendments to the Administrative Code have been put into force by the Federal Law of February 24, 2021, No. 19-FZ
 
Likewise, illegal data collection and processing – when not provided for by law – may entail a fine of 100,000 rubles and 300,000 rubles for a primary and a repeated offense, respectively.
