UK Government and ICO Agree on Procedure for Future Adequacy Decisions

On March 19, 2021, the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport signed a Memorandum of Understandingwith the UK Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) with respect to new UK adequacy assessments following the UK’s departure from the European Union.

The Memorandum of Understanding sets out how DCMS and third countries will negotiate adequacy decisions, referred to under the MoU as “adequacy regulations”. These permit the free transfer of personal data collected in the UK to the relevant “adequate” jurisdiction.
