Applicable Laws

The data privacy law practiced in Sri Lanka takes cue from its Electronic Transactions Act Number 19 of 2006 which covers those legislations broadly. However, there is no specific law that is practiced within the sector of background verification and they consider the U.K. Data Protection Act as a model one and hence would use the provisions of same.
