Will we still have this Regulation after the UK leaves the EU?

We will still keep this regulation once the UK leaves the EU for two reasons:

  • this Regulation comes into effect before we leave the EU so we need to implement it for the time we are in the EU, and
  • when the UK is no longer part of the EU it will be necessary for the UK to prove that our standards for processing personal data are at least as good as those throughout the EU, for the remaining countries to be able to transfer data to the UK. One way of proving the UK data processing standards is to retain the basis of the EU Regulation on which all other Member States are using to regulate data processing.
