The Data Protection Act 2017 of Mauritius came into force in 2018 and seeks to align the laws in Mauritius with international standards found in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the ¹Convention for the Protection of Individuals with regard to Automatic Processing of Personal Data (CETS No.108). It set out the principles which govern the processing of personal data in Mauritius and also explains the rights of data subjects.

¹The Convention opened for signature on 28 January 1981 and was the first legally binding international instrument in the data protection field. Under this Convention, the parties are required to take the necessary steps in their domestic legislation to apply the principles it lays down in order to ensure respect in their territory for the fundamental human rights of all individuals with regard to processing of personal data.
