Our current Brexit options and the consequences for UK data protection law
"If the EU does find the U.K.’s data protections are adequate, the policies for transferring EU-based data in the U.K. will be more straightforward, said Kingsley Napley senior associate Rowena Rix.
"It will largely operate as it does now,” noted Rix. Still, a timeline for obtaining that adequacy decision seems difficult as the U.K. government juggles other pressing issues, including entering international trade agreements to ensure imports and exports of food.
"There will be so much to consider in terms of Brexit. It’s just a question of where they see that on their list of priorities. Who know what that list will look like?” Rix said. “Organizations have to be prepared for the possibility of not having this finding of adequacy for a while.”
"I think definitely in our community there’s a wait-and-see approach, because you could be rewriting all your contracts and you don’t have to,” Rix said.
