What does Brexit mean for GDPR?
The UK’s 2018 Data Protection Act is an almost identical copy of GDPR for a reason: when the UK leaves the EU, there won’t be a huge shift in the law. After the UK leaves, GDPR will still protect the rights of EU citizens with businesses and organisations not having to change their policies.
But there could be changes for organisations that move data between the European Economic Area and the UK. This depends on what deal the UK leaves with. Because the UK will not, technically, be part of GDPR it doesn’t have any assurances that data will be protected. As such, data adequacy becomes important.
At present, the UK government has said it will seek adequacy agreements with the EU to clarify that its data protection system is essentially the same as GDPR. Once agreed, this would mean that data could easily flow between the EEA and the UK.
