Brexit

Data protection

The Data Protection Intelligence Group has published a further paper on Brexit and international personal data transfers. The new paper focuses on a ‘Brexit ready’ template international transfers sub-clause for personal data processing arrangements between controllers and processors which may continue after the UK has exited the EU. See News Analysis: New ‘Brexit ready’ template sub-clause for international personal data transfers published.

Eleonor Duhs, director at Fieldfisher, provides a comprehensive update on the ePrivacy Regulation and considers the potential implications of Brexit. See News Analysis: Future of ePrivacy Regulation and impact of Brexit on its application in UK.


Financial crime

This week’s Brexit voting deadline could propel Britain out of the EU without a regulatory safety net in April 2019, a process that would open chinks in the country’s defences against fraud and financial crime that may never be closed. See News Analysis: Hard Brexit could put chinks in UK’s financial crime armor.


Providing services to EEA and EFTA countries

The government has published updated its guidance for UK businesses on EU service provision that collates stakeholder and sector guidance on Brexit, focusing on preparing for a no-deal scenario. See: LNB News 07/03/2019 54 and LNB News 11/03/2019 115.
