Brexit information 


Important notices

Agreement on trade and cooperation between EU and UK was among the instruments signed on December 30th, 2020. This Agreement is provisionally applied since January 1st, 2021 back to back with the end of transitional period pursuant to Withdrawal Agreement, which terminated on December 31st, 2020. The Agreement regulates also police cooperation and judicial cooperation in criminal matters.

As far as protection of personal data is concerned, the Agreement contains transitional provision, which allows, for up to six next months, transfer of personal data from the EU to the UK, unless there is substantial change of domestic British rules or the European Commission adopts decision on adequate protection of personal data in the UK. For this transitional period, the transfers of personal data to United Kingdom are not regarded as transfers to third countries and therefore are not constrained by limitations stipulated by EU rules, in particular General Data Protection Regulation (2016/679/EU). Thus, the legal situation for controllers and processors does not change for the time being.
