EUROPEAN COMMISSION PUBLISHES DRAFT UK ADEQUACY DECISIONS
19 February 2021
As a beginning of a process, the European Commission has today published two adequacy decisions for transfers of personal data to the United Kingdom, one under the General Data Protection Regulation and the other for the Law Enforcement Directive.
Until then data flows between the European Economic Area and the UK continue and remain safe thanks to a conditional interim regime that was agreed in the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement. This interim period expires on 30 June 2021.
We, as Data Protection Compliance Team of Zumbul Attorneys-at-Law, will share our detailed article on this topic soon.
