BEIJING - China is drafting a law on personal information protection, according to the Legislative Affairs Commission of the National People's Congress (NPC) Standing Committee.

A draft of the law has taken shape and will be submitted to the NPC Standing Committee, China's top legislature, for review after a revision at an early date, according to the commission.

In recent years, the NPC and its Standing Committee have formulated provisions concerning personal information security and protection in multiple laws, including the cybersecurity law, general rules of the civil code, criminal law and e-commerce law.

The commission and the Office of the Central Cyberspace Affairs Commission began their research and drafting of the law on personal information protection in 2018.
