PIPL: People's Republic of China Privacy Laws
PIPL is a comprehensive data privacy law that took effect on November 1, 2021. It is intended to protect the personal information of individuals located inside mainland China.
For more detailed information about PIPL at the University of Illinois, follow this link.
Please note that because PIPL went into effect recently and is large and complex, there are many offices at the University of Illinois currently working on how best to proceed. OPRS is unable to provide a precise estimate of how long the review of your protocol may take if PIPL applies. OPRS is unable to approve research if PIPL applies without consultation and approval from other units at the university.
