Data Adequacy Controls
Data adequacy controls Following the UK and EU agreeing a trade deal the ICO has published a statement setting out that the Treaty agreed with the EU will allow personal data to flow freely from the EU (and EEA) to the UK, until adequacy decisions have been adopted.
This period will last for four months, with the option to extend for a further two. This will enable businesses and public bodies across all sectors to continue to freely receive data from the EU (and EEA), including law enforcement agencies.
