Conducting E-Commerce in Europe and Asia: Navigating the Legal and Regulatory Landscape

Synopsis

E-commerce has become a standard way of doing business and the recent pandemic has only accelerated this trend worldwide. But although the technology behind this way of doing business is practically universal, the law framing those transactions remains very much regulated by different national or region-wide laws. To which extent can one discern, beyond those differences, a common pattern that may help businesses design a legal framework for their transaction that will pass muster cross-boarders? This webinar will seek to highlight the convergences and divergences of e-commerce laws in Asia and Europe.

Implication of Climate Change Laws on Compliance, Risk and Cost of Business

Synopsis

In the last two years, a number of regional laws have started to take into account climate change in the context of financial investment. In Europe, regulation 2019/2088 and 2020/852 have introduced rules concerning sustainability related disclosure in financial services and on the establishment of a framework to facilitate sustainable investments. Singapore Government unveiled its Green Plan 2030, a “whole-of-nation movement” to advance the national agenda on sustainable development with ambitious green targets for the next 10 years.

On 14 April 2021, New Zealand became the first country in the world to introduce climate change laws targeted at the financial sector. Governments are developing policies, guidelines, regulations and initiatives to promote sustainable and responsible businesses. Organisations are also embracing and integrating sustainability in their operations. What trends in the legal, regulatory and policy landscape are expected in the light of these developments, and what impact will these have on business strategies and business operations? This session seeks to explore the Asia and EU perspective on how climate change laws may affect business compliance risks and business costs, and issues that legal professionals need to be mindful of as they navigate this new landscape.

A Comparative Overview of Consent in Data Protection Regulation
(When and How to Obtain It)


Synopsis

Contrary to popular belief among people unfamiliar with data protection legislation, obtaining consent is not the only legal path to personal data processing: for instance, an increasing number of data privacy laws envisage a number of situations in which such processing is implicitly considered within the data subject’s interest or the legitimate interest of data controllers. What are those situations and how do they differ in Europe, Singapore, and other Asian jurisdictions? This webinar will seek to shed some light on the commonalities and differences in both regions.

It is also commonly considered that obtaining consent is the ultimate shield against illegal data processing; but is this really the case? To what extent will a court or a regulator consider that an actual consent has been obtained from the data subject? Studying the requirements for consent collection in Europe and Asia is critical for businesses seeking to create a common data processing scheme for their clients in both regions; this webinar will help in making the right choices.
