UK organisations will therefore need to prepare for and start to comply with the GDPR notwithstanding Brexit. Other EU Member States must also comply with GDPR from 25 May 2018. The UK government has confirmed that the UK’s decision to leave the EU will not affect the commencement of the GDPR.
For information on the GDPR, see Practice Note: Introduction to the EU GDPR and UK GDPR. For information of consent under the GDPR, see Practice Notes: Processing personal data—standard of consent and Processing personal data—obtaining, recording and managing consent.
