The UK’s independent authority set up to uphold information rights in the public interest, promoting openness by public bodies and data privacy for individuals.

If you are a UK business or organisation that already complies with the GDPR and you have no contacts in the EEA who send you data, and no customers in the EEA, you do not need to do much to prepare for data protection at the end of the transition period.

  • Your best preparation for data protection once the transition period ends is to comply with the GDPR now.
  • The UK is committed to maintaining the high standards of the GDPR and the government plans to incorporate it into UK law alongside the Data Protection Act 2018 when the transition period ends.
  • Make sure you review your privacy information and documentation to identify any minor changes that need to be made by the end of the transition period.
