Europe cannot rubber stamp the UK’s data laws
- The United Kingdom is currently awaiting a decision from Europe on whether it provides adequate standards of data protection.
- This would mean personal data could flow from Europe to data controllers in the UK without the need for costly administrative burdens.
- The European Commission has produced a draft decision seeking to grant adequacy to the United Kingdom.
- However, Open Rights Group and others are currently raising concerns about the standards of protection within the UK across various areas.
