  • minimum standards applicable to contracts concluded with data subjects for the processing of personal data;
  • minimum standards applicable to contracts concluded between controllers and processors for the processing of personal data, as well as obligations for processors;
  • prohibition against mandatory provision of biometric data, whereby the controller is not entitled to refuse to provide a service if the data subject objects;
  • for the purpose of cross-border data transfers:
    • expanded authorisation for the Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology, and Mass Media ('Roskomnadzor') to approve third countries that provide adequate data protection;
    • requirements on the controller to notify the Roskomnadzor, prior to conducting transfers;
    • requirements on the controller to conduct an assessment of the intended third country, prior to conducting transfers;
    • powers for the Roskomnadzor to prohibit certain transfers; and
  • clarified controller obligations in relation to policies and procedures, data subject rights, and data breach notifications.

Notably, the Amendment Law enters into effect on 1 September 2022, although some provisions will be delayed until 1 March 2023, including those concerning cross-border data transfers. source:
