Singapore’s consumer watchdog announces studies on data portability and online travel booking

In collaboration with the Personal Data Protection Commission, CCCS will study consumer protection, competition and personal data protection implications of introducing a data portability requirement in Singapore.

The Competition and Consumer Commission of Singapore (CCCS) has announced two new market studies into the online travel booking sector and data portability. These initiatives were revealed by Dr Koh Poh Koon, Senior Minister of State for Ministry Of Trade & Industry and National Development at the official launch of the CCCS, which was renamed as such from the Competition Commission of Singapore. The agency has taken on the responsibility of administering the Consumer Protection (Fair Trading) Act (Chapter 52A) or CPFTA with effect from 1 April 2018, in addition to the the Competition Act (Cap. 50B).
