UK-GDPR and EU GDPR Regulation

As of the 25th of May 2018, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) strengthens the rights of individuals regarding their personal data and seeks to unify local data protection laws across Europe. GDPR requires new or additional obligations on organizations in the EU processing personal data and organizations outside of the EU processing personal data of EU residents.

On 31 December 2020, the National Commission for Data Protection (CNPD) published a statement on the applicability of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons regarding the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data (GDPR), following the UK’s departure from the European Union (EU).

On June 28, 2021, the European Commission adopted an adequacy decision for the UK, ensuring the continued free flow of personal data between the two blocs for the next four years.

The UK already has in place a new domestic data privacy law called UK-GDPR that is the same as the EU version and is supported by the UK’s Data Protection Act of 2018.

Compliance with the UK-GDPR and EU’s GDPR remains an obligation for any website, company or organization who process personal data form either inside the UK or EU: the explicit consent of users must be obtained before any processing or transfer is allowed to take place.
