This document contains guidance on subjects impacted by these changes. Before continuing your research, see Practice Note: Brexit—implications for data protection.

This Practice Note considers the General Data Protection Regulation, Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (GDPR), the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA 2018) and data protection issues that should or may be considered during disclosure in civil proceedings. It looks at the role of the CPR and GDPR during the disclosure process, the processing of personal data and special category data during disclosure, redaction of personal data, the position in relation to documents subject to legal professional privilege under relevant data protection provisions and data subject access requests (DSARs).
