Data Protection Trust Policy


Brexit and data protection

The UK has now officially left the EU, and laws about international data transfers have changed.

The UK is yet to be granted an ‘adequacy decision’ by the EU which will allow data to flow without additional safeguards. However, the UK and EU have put a temporary arrangement in place, detailed within the UK-EU Trade and Cooperation Agreement which came into force on 1st January 2021.

This allows the current transitional arrangement to continue. Personal data can continue to flow from the EU/EEA to the UK for up to six months, on the condition that the UK makes no major changes to its data protection laws. This gives the EU Commission time to consider granting an adequacy decision to the UK.


The UK has retained the General Data Protection Regulation in domestic law, and GDPR in the UK is retitled ‘UK GDPR’.


Once the additional transitional arrangement has concluded, we will provide updated documentation.
