Singapore has flagged that it plans to introduce privacy legislation in early 2012. A public consultation paper issued by the Ministry of Information, Communications and the Arts was released on 13 September 2011, titled: Proposed Consumer Data Protection Regime For Singapore.

The paper recommends the introduction of private sector privacy legislation based on a mix of EU and APEC best practice. Interestingly, the paper also proposes the establishment of a national Do Not Call Register to fight against the intrusion of telemarketing.

Singapore joins a growing list of countries with proposed and draft privacy legislation in the region.
