EU Commission makes important UK GDPR decision

The EU Commission has adopted an 'adequacy decision' for the UK under the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This means that personal data can continue to flow freely from the European Economic Area into the UK without the need for additional safeguards, such as Standard Contractual Clauses, or SCCs, to be put in place.

The decision has a time limit and is set to automatically expire four years after coming into effect. The adequacy status can be renewed by the Commission providing that the UK maintains an adequate level of data protection.

Organisations should continue to implement the compliance requirements previously outlined in the CLC guidance and refer to the resources and advice provided by the ICO, EDPB and UK Government.
