Indonesia Government Regulation No. 71 (GR 71)
Indonesia's Government Regulation No. 71 of 2019 regarding Operation of Electronic System and Transactions ("GR 71") regulates the activities of Electronic System Operators (ESOs), generally defined as any person, government administrator, business entity, or member of society that provides, administers, and/or operates an electronic system individually or collectively for users. As of October 10, 2019, GR 71 amends Indonesia's previous Government Regulation No. 82 of 2012 to provide more clarity around data localization requirements, including additional flexibility for private-sector ESOs to store systems and data outside Indonesia, subject to certain restrictions. GR 71 also includes registration requirements for ESOs, general data protection and security requirements, erasure and delisting rights for data owners, and content prohibitions, among other requirements.
