EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations are made in exercise of the powers conferred by section 8(1) of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (c. 16) in order to address failures of retained EU law to operate effectively and other deficiencies (in particular under section 8(2)(d)) arising from the withdrawal of the United Kingdom (“UK”) from the European Union.

These Regulations amend the Data Protection, Privacy and Electronic Communications (Amendments etc) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 (S.I. 2019/419) to reflect arrangements made for personal data to continue to be transferred from the UK to organisations in the United States of America participating in the Privacy Shield Framework, where the participating organisation’s privacy policy includes personal data transferred from the UK in its Privacy Shield commitments.

A full impact assessment has not been produced for this instrument as no, or no significant, impact on the private or voluntary sector is foreseen.
