Argentina’s data protection authority, the Agency of Access to Public Information, published its Annual Report 2022, which highlights the most relevant aspects of its management regarding the protection of personal data.
The AAPI was created by Law No. 27,275 on the Right of Access to Public Information as an autonomous entity with functional autonomy within the scope of the President’s Chief of Staff Office. It is the authority of application of Law No. 27,275 on the Right of Access to Public Information, Law No. 25,326 on the Protection of Personal Data, and Law No. 26,951 on the National Do Not Call Registry. One of its objectives is to strengthen public policies for the protection of personal data. In March 2022, the Director of the AAPI Beatriz de Anchorena was appointed through a public hearing process.
