House of Lords European Affairs Committee inquiry into data adequacy

Posted On: 05 Jun 2024



The Centre for Cross Border Studies has submitted its response to the House of Lords European Affairs Committee inquiry into data adequacy and its implications for the UK-EU relationship. You can download a copy of the Centre’s submission here.

The inquiry comes ahead of the upcoming renewal decision to continue allowing the free flow of commercial and criminal investigation related personal data to and from the bloc, which was granted by the EU post-Brexit under the General Data Protection Regulation and the Law Enforcement Directive.

The inquiry will focus on how current arrangements are working in practice, including benefits and shortcomings, as well as the possible implications of any divergence in the respective data protection regimes of the UK and EU.

The inquiry will focus, in particular, on the following themes:

  • Assessment of the existing adequacy arrangement underpinning data flows between the UK and the European Union
  • Possible challenges to UK-EU data adequacy regime
  • Implications of a no or disrupted UK-EU data adequacy scenario
  • Lessons learned from other countries’ experiences with the adequacy system and engagement with the European Commission’s process.
