Data Protection World Forum: Brexit Briefing Event
If the UK exits the EU UK on 29 March 2019 without a deal the UK would still be subject to the GDPR but as of 30 March 2019, the UK would become a “third country”.
One of the ways in which personal data can be lawfully exported to a third country is by what is called an an ‘adequacy decision’ from the European Commission.
Argentina, Canada, Switzerland and many other countries already have been recognised as providing adequate protection but there is little chance that UK will have been deemed ‘adequate’ by the European Commission by 30 March 2019!
The Information Commissioners Office (ICO) has said; ‘an assessment of adequacy can only take place once the UK has left the EU. These assessments and negotiations have usually taken many months.’
To prepare for a no-deal Brexit attend this briefing on 6th March.
Gemserv’s Head of Privacy and Data Protection, Ivana Bartoletti, will be one of the key speakers at this important event.
