House of Lords Committee launches UK-EU data adequacy inquiry

18/03/2024 | UK Parliament

The House of Lords European Affairs Committee has launched an inquiry into data adequacy and its implications for the UK-EU relationship. The inquiry, chaired by Lord Ricketts, comes before the decision to renew the free flow of commercial and criminal personal data to and from Europe, granted by the EU post-Brexit.

The inquiry will assess the existing adequacy arrangement underpinning data flows between the UK and the EU, possible challenges to the UK-EU data adequacy regime such as the Data Protection and Digital Information (DPDI) Bill, implications of a disrupted or removed UK-EU data adequacy agreement, and lessons learned from other countries’ experiences with the adequacy system.

Interested individuals must submit written evidence by Friday, 3 May 2024. Public evidence sessions are expected to take place between March and June. The Committee aims to report to the House by July 2024.
