Brexit: ICT and digital services

This information is provided by

Brexitloket |

Do you supply ICT or digital services in the UK? Or do you store data in the UK? These data flows are no longer subject to EU legislation. With the exception of personal data, free flow of data between the EU and the UK continues to apply.

This information is based on the agreement between the EU and the UK.

Transitional arrangements

The agreement features transitional arrangements to avoid confusion on the level of data protection. The EU and the UK have agreed on a bridging mechanism, that allows the continued free flow of personal data from the EU to the UK. This temporary measure remains in place until adequacy decisions come into effect. During a 6-month period the transferring of personal data to the UK is not considered a transferral to a third country.

Please consult the website of the Dutch Data Protection Authority (Dutch DPA, in Dutch) for more information.
