August 14, 2021
Susan Mackie

On the 28th June 2021 EU commission announced that adequacy decisions for the UK have been approved.  Elizabeth Denham the UK Information Commissioner said this is a positive result for UK business and organisations.

But what next? How do we stay in Adequacy ?  In general this will be reviewed in 4 years' time, however the European Parliament and the EU Council may request the EU Commission to maintain, amend or withdraw the adequacy decision sooner where a major incident or change in how or who we consider for adequacy

For businesses:  

Adequacy should remain on your risk register and it should be a major consideration during procurement tenders you are applying for and when purchasing services & products.

Your business should  also continue to assess & plan for business continuity should this decision be overturned.
