EU Commission’s approval of the UK’s adequacy
The EU Commission has announced on 28.06.2021 that adequacy decisions for the UK have been approved.
This means the EU has determined the UK’s data protection laws to be robust enough to ensure data can safely flow to the UK from the EU (and EEA).
Approved adequacy means that businesses can continue to receive data from the EU without having to make any changes to their data protection practices.
Adequacy is the best outcome as it means organisations can carry on with data protection as usual. And people will continue to enjoy the protections that their data will be used fairly, lawfully and transparently.”
The result is also a testament to the strength of the UK’s data protection regime.
