Brexit and UK GDPR Supplemental Material   

Since January 2021, the UK is no longer bound by EU law, which means that the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) only applies insofar as an organisation within the UK works with personal data related to EU residents. The UK, meanwhile, has passed laws that set the same requirements into UK law as the UK GDPR. Organisations that use personal data from both the EU and the UK must be prepared to comply with both regimes.

We have published supplements to our bestselling titles EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – An implementation and compliance guide, fourth editionEU GDPR – An international guide to compliance, and Data Protection and the Cloud – Are you really managing the risks?, which focus on identifying the key changes and context relating to the UK GDPR. As such, the information contained within the supplements is primarily of interest to organisations in the UK, organisations that process the personal data of UK residents, and organisations that process personal data on behalf of organisations in the UK.  

The supplements set out specific extra or amended information for EU General Data Protection Regulation – An implementation and compliance guide, fourth edition, EU GDPR – An international guide to compliance and Data Protection and the Cloud – Are you really managing the risks?. If you have a previous edition of these publications, you may find the page numbers referenced differ in your edition.
