IP COMPLETION DAY: 11pm (GMT) on 31 December 2020 marks the end of the Brexit transition/implementation period entered into following the UK’s withdrawal from the EU. At this point in time (referred to in UK law as ‘IP completion day’), key transitional arrangements come to an end and significant changes begin to take effect across the UK’s legal regime. This document contains guidance on subjects impacted by these changes. Before continuing your research, see Practice Note: Brexit—implications for data protection.

Following IP completion day, the EU GDPR was incorporated into the UK’s domestic law as the ‘UK GDPR’. The UK GDPR is heavily derived from the EU GDPR and generally the terms and core concepts used in the UK GDPR have the same meaning as they do in the EU GDPR, although there are a number of key detailed differences between the two regimes. In summary, in a similar manner to the EU GDPR, the UK GDPR applies to the processing of personal data and provides rights to those data subjects whose data is processed and imposes obligations on both controllers and processors of the personal data.

The UK GDPR regime is comprised of two main pieces of legislation:

  1. a version of General Data Protection Regulation, Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (the EU GDPR) to be incorporated into UK law (with various amendments made by Brexit legislation)
