On 12 February 2019, the European Data Protection Board (EDPB) adopted an information note “on data transfers under the GDPR in the event of a no-deal Brexit.” According to the note, as of 30 March 2019, transfers of personal data from the European Economic Area (EEA) to the UK must be based either on Standard or ad hoc Data Protection Clauses, Binding Corporate Rules, Codes of Conduct, Certification Mechanisms or Derogations.

The information note provides detailed information on these transfer instruments. It is targeted at commercial and public organisations as the primary audience and is based on guidance notes provided by national supervisory authorities and the European Commission.

The EDPB’s note is available on its website.
