Data Disputes Mediation and Arbitration Center to start under FDPPI

FDPPI (Foundation of Data Protection Professionals in India) is the Champion organization in Personal Data protection in India. Started in September 2018 under the leadership of Naavi, FDPPI has made significant strides in establishing itself as the torch bearer of Data protection in India to the extent that its byline “Think Data, Think FDPPI” makes real sense.

In its bid to provide End to End data protection services, FDPPI today provides “Certification in Data protection laws of India and other major laws” through two programs titled Module-I and Module-G.

FDPPI also is working on the “Unified Personal Data Protection Framework” namely PDPSI (Personal Data Protection Standard of India” so that organizations may be compliant with Personal data protection Act of India as at present and as proposed with extensions for GDPR and other data protection laws to which an organization in India is exposed.

The third leg of serving the Data Protection community namely providing a “Grievance Redressal mechanism” for

a) Data Principals (Data Subjects) and the Data Fiduciaries (Data Controllers)

b) Data Principals and Consent Managers  or

c) Data Principal and another Data Principal

d) Data Fiduciary and Data Processor or a sub contractor

e) Data Processor and a sub contractor etc

Now FDPPI has started work on establishing a “Data Disputes Mediation and Arbitration Center” to address Alternate Dispute Resolution Mechanism required by the industry.

Initially the “Mediation” wing will start operations. Subsequently, a “With Recourse Arbitration” meaning Arbitration without prejudice to the Adjudication proceedings provided under the legacy system would be introduced.

The arbitration and mediation would meet the expectations of Indian Arbitration Act as amended and will also be in tune with the technical standards indicated by UNCITRAL.

The entire infrastructure for the same is available under which will be made available for online arbitration. The professionals to conduct the arbitration would be drawn from the trained senior professionals who are experts in the field of Data Protection with more than 10 years of legal and technical expertise.

Hopefully, with this FDPPI will be able to provide the required support to the Data Protection industry even before the Personal Data Protection Bill becomes an Act.

Cyber Law College is also organizing the necessary mandatory training in Indian Arbitration Act to those who are participating in this activity.

More details will be made available through FDPPI.
