PwC, time.lex and Spark Legal Network have completed the study on the future EU-UK relationship: options in the field of the protection of personal data for general processing activities and for processing for law enforcement purposes. This study was commissioned by the European Parliament’s Policy Department for Citizens’ Rights and Constitutional Affairs at the request of the LIBE Committee. It examines the available mechanisms for personal data transfers between the EU and the UK after Brexit. The study shows that the existing legal mechanisms and policy measures which are presently used to support the exchange of personal data between the EU and third countries can alleviate some of the concerns surrounding Brexit, but that none of these, in isolation or collectively, would be sufficient to permit a continuation of personal data flows and cooperation in relation to data protection on the same basis as today. Please see the factsheet for more information.
