In the wake of the EU GDPR and with BREXIT on the horizon, the United Kingdom has released the first draft of the UK GDPR - the rules and implementation of the BREXIT Data Protection amendments to the relevant UK domestic law acts and the United Kingdom - General Data Protection Regulation.

US Businesses need to appoint a UK Data Protection Representative for BREXIT

Image
When BREXIT happens on the 29th of March 2019, there are requirements for organisations that deal with UK citizens to have a Data Protection Representative in the UK.

This is becoming common place in many jurisdictions under modern data protection laws, and it enables the extra-territorial reach laws to be exercised by the regulators.

When the UK was part of the EU, it was operating within the GDPR, once it is no longer part of the EU, it will operate under what has been called the "UK GDPR" a unique set of regulatory rules, that will effectively mean that the UK will become something of a mini-EU.

This means that non-UK businesses that deal with UK Citizens, will be required, under certain circumstances, to put in place a Data Protection Representative in the UK. You can achieve that by visiting the dp.services website, and selecting the BREXIT Data Protection Representative Deals.

US Businesses, need to be aware that the Privacy-Shield, doesn't extend to the UK once i…
