EDPB sends letter to ICO UK on Brexit data protection implications


On 20 October 2020, the EDPB sent a letter to the UK’s DPA (“ICO UK”) regarding the Brexit data protection implications.

This letter outlines that the dialog on recent developments in EU data protection law, remaining transnational cases, and other issues that have an impact on the application of EU data protection rules in the UK is carried out by the EDPB, in compliance with the provisions of the EU-UK Withdrawal Agreement.

In addition, this letter mentions that the Cooperation expert subgroup will continue to work on the issue of cooperation procedures and will develop a framework of legal and practical criteria that will serve the smooth handling of ongoing cases, devoting special attention to those cases where ICO UK has been the lead authority so far.
The letter is available here.
