According to Euractiv, the European Commission has expressed concerns over the future of certain aspects of the UK’s data protection regime, which could negatively impact the safety of EU personal data in the context of cross-border data sharing. The EU is currently conducting an assessment of the UK’s data protection legislation to make a determination of ‘adequacy’, in order to determine if EU data can safely be transferred to the UK after Brexit.
