Leaving the EU

Although GDPR is derived from an EU Regulation, the UK's Data Protection Act 2018 incorporates GDPR - with only a few largely technical amendments - into UK law.  Very little has therefore changed with the UK's departure from the EU, although it could in theory change in future, of course.

The only area where problems may arise in future is for organisations which want to export data to the EU.  The EU has decided that the UK has an 'adequate' data protection regime, meaning that there are no barriers to data transfer between the UK and the EU.  This adequacy decision will, however, be reviewed in 2025.
