Brazil’s LGPD borrows heavily from the GDPR legislation. Similar to the GDPR, it includes strong consequences for data processing inside and outside of Brazil.

The LGPD was passed in 2018 and went into effect in February 2020. LGPD at a glance: 


The LGPD data privacy law borrows heavily from the GDPR. If you're already compliant with the GDPR, you're nearly there. 


If your business or organization processes the personal data of Brazilians, you're required to comply with the LGPD.


The biggest difference between the LGPD and the GDPR are the number of qualifying categories for the legal processing of data.
