The Department for International Trade has updated its guidance on businesses using personal data, as well as its guidance on the data protection and copyright obligations for EU businesses transferring data to and from the UK.

The update follows the EU's formal adaptation of adequacy decisions for the UK, which allow for the ongoing free flow of personal data from the EU/EEA to the UK. All 12 of the third countries deemed adequate by the EU are also maintaining unrestricted personal data flows with the UK.
