GDPR Brexit flowchart

This week has brought further uncertainty on the route to Brexit. The planned vote in the UK Parliament on the Withdrawal Agreement – intended to establish an orderly transition period for the UK to withdraw from the EU between 30 March 2019 and 31 December 2020 – has been postponed leaving considerable uncertainty as to next steps, including the prospect of a ‘hard’ departure on 30 March 2019 with ‘no deal’ in place.

DLA Piper have produced a GDPR Brexit flowchart which maps out the key data protection impacts for each of the political routes that may now follow, showing the likely timelines and implications of both the ‘deal’ and ‘no-deal’ scenarios, which we hope will be a useful tool in contingency planning through these uncertain and difficult times.
