The following Life Sciences guidance note provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
BREXIT: On 31 January 2020, the UK ceased to be an EU Member State and entered an implementation period, during which it continues to be subject to EU law. During this period, the General Data Protection Regulation, Regulation (EU) 2016/679 applies in the UK and the UK generally continues to be treated as an EU (and EEA) state for EEA and UK data protection law purposes. Any references to EEA or EU states in this Practice Note should therefore be read to also include the UK until the end of the implementation period. For further guidance on that period, its duration and the data protection laws that are anticipated to apply after the end of it, see Practice Note: Brexit—implications for data protection.
