UK Data Protection Bill in discussion in the Parliament

On 14 September 2017 the UK government announced the publication of the Data Protection Bill (“Bill”) that replaces the current Data Protection Act 1998.

The Bill aims to provide a legal framework “essentially equivalent” to the GDPR so that, following Brexit, the UK will likely offer an adequate level of data protection and therefore be able to receive an adequacy decision by the EU Commission.

Despite its similarity, the UK introduces some conditions and exceptions that modify or supplement the GDPR.
