The Argentine Personal Data Protection Authority ("APDPA") issued Opinion No. 2/2013 in which it ratified its interpretation as regards the requirements to be followed in disclosures of Personal Data ("PD") between governmental authorities. In this case, the Prosecutor's Office of the Province of La Pampa (the "Prosecutor's Office") requested information from the National Immigration Authority about entries and departures from Argentina of a public officer who was under investigation. Based on this request, the Immigration Authority asked the APDPA to clarify if PD could be disclosed to the Prosecutor's Office without the public officer's express consent. The APDPA ratified that there is no need to obtain the data owner's express consent in order to disclose PD directly from one governmental authority to another (without the participation of any third parties) when the PD to be disclosed is adequate and necessary for purposes of performing and complying with the functions of the governmental authority receiving the PD. In addition, the APDPA ratified that it is the disclosing governmental authority's duty to analyze if the PD to be shared is indeed adequate and necessary for such purposes.
