- During its 48th plenary session, the European Data Protection Board adopted two opinions on the European Commission's draft U.K. adequacy decision. The opinions assess the commission's draft decision under the EU General Data Protection Regulation and Law Enforcement Directive. The EDPB highlights the areas of alignment between the EU and U.K. frameworks, as well as areas that need to be further monitored by the commission.
- Members of the European Parliament asked the Civil Liberties Committee to wait before adopting its stance on U.K. adequacy, Euractiv reports. MEPs Sophie in ‘t Veld and Moritz Körner submitted a request to Civil Liberties Chair Juan Fernando López Aguilar last month, asking the committee to delay its response to analyze the EDPB's opinion on the matter.
- The European Parliamentary Research Service released a report on private sector data transfers between the EU and U.K. following Brexit. The report covers the mechanisms that could be used to transfer data between the two sides under the GDPR. The EPRS also explores potential trouble areas that could affect U.K. adequacy and examines the commission’s draft adequacy decision.
Editor's note: IAPP Editorial Director Jedidiah Bracy, CIPP, wrote for The Privacy Advisor about the commission's draft adequacy decision.
