Habemus UK adequacy!

After many debates, lots of speculation, and negotiations, the Adequacy decisions for the United Kingdom have been approved and Personal Data can continue to flow freely from the EEA to the UK after 30 June 2021.

In my opinion, it is both right and reasonable that the decisions have been adopted, given that the UK has always been one of the leading forces in the development, application, and interpretation of the GDPR by way of the ICO (the UK Data Protection Authority).

NB! The adequacy decision includes safeguards in case of future divergence such as a ‘sunset clause’, which limits the duration of adequacy to four years.
