End of Transition Period - keeping data safeEnd of Transition Period - keeping data safe

The government has confirmed that the transition period will end on 31 December 2020 and there will be no extension. On 1 January 2021, the UK will become a "third country" for data protection purposes unless an adequacy decision is reached with the EU. If the European Commission grants an adequacy decision, then no action will need to be taken by social care providers. The briefing (link below) will help you with contingency planning and with what to do if an adequacy decision is not reached by 31 December 2020.

There are three key actions that all adult social care providers should take to prepare for the end of the transition period. Further details are available in the briefing.

  1. Ensure you are compliant with UK GDPR
  2. Check if you transfer personal data in the EU.
  3. Check if any of the software companies you use store personal data in the EU/EEA.
