A guide to what Brexit means for UK business and GDPR

On May 25th 2018, after almost seven years in the pipeline, the General Data Protection Regulations, or the GDPR as it is more commonly known, was put into place.

It supersedes the EU’s Data Protection Directive 1995 and all member state law based on it – including the UK’s DPA (Data Protection Act) 1998. The act gives individuals and organisations within the European Union more control over how their personal data is used, and places much more responsibility and legislation on organisations that process and hold personal data.

It covers all of the countries within the European Union. Of course, the United Kingdom is set to leave the EU on December 31st, 2020, and as of then, the GDPR will no longer apply. However, any organisation based outside of the EU that offers goods or services to EU residents must also adhere to the GDPR regulations.

Once the UK has completed the Brexit transition period, the EU GDPR will be enacted in law under the European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Act 2020, and domestically will be known as the UK GDPR. At that point, an organisation may need an EU representative, and this is what we are going to look at in more detail in this useful guide
