The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) currently allows a two-way free flow of personal data between the EEA and the UK. In the event of a No-Deal, this will change and on 30 March 2019 the UK will become a “third country” for the purposes of transfers from the EEA to the UK. The European Data Protection Board has issued guidance on personal data transfers in this scenario. Click here for a summary of this guidance and pointers on what organisations transferring data from the EU to the UK should do now.
