#Ad: MediaNama's is holding a round table discussion on the governance of non-personal data on August 6 and 7, 2020. You can apply to attend here. The Committee of Experts on Non-Personal Data Governance Framework has recommended that a separate legislation be formulated to govern non-personal data, and a new regulatory body, while also addressing a long standing question: what exactly is Non-Personal Data? In its draft report, released on July 12, 2020, the committee has defined non-personal data as any data that is not related to an identified or identifiable natural person, or is personal data that has been anonymised.

This data, the committee recommends, should be further classified into three categories — public NPD, community NPD, and private NPD. The report identifies and defines new stakeholders in the non-personal data ecosystem, including data principal, data custodian, data trustee, and data trust, and contours their obligations and mechanisms to enable data sharing. It has also sets circumstances under which a private organisation, that collects non-personal data, needs to be remunerated.
