Post-Brexit data flow in the event of a no deal scenario

Adrian Beney made this Freedom of Information request to Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Dear Department for Culture, Media and Sport,

On 23 July 2018 the Department for Existing the EU published a response to an FoI request entitled "Current DExEU expectations with regards to GDPR and data flow between Britain and the EU "

At that point a "No Deal" scenario seemed only a distant possibility and the response to the above request envisaged an adequacy determination by the EU in respect of the UK's treatment of personal data.

Please now provide any information regarding DCMS's planning for the flow of personal data between the UK and the EU should the UK leave the EU in a "No Deal" situation.

Yours sincerely,

Adrian Beney
