Data protection if there’s no Brexit deal

Under the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018, EU-derived law such as the General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (“GDPR”), will become part of the domestic law when the UK leaves the EU on the 29th March 2019.

Data protection law in the UK is governed by the GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018, and an immediate change is not anticipated, even in the event of a “no-deal” Brexit.

However, personal data transferred from the EU to the UK would be restricted, as the UK would become a third country.
