The Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) has issued new Brexit guidance to UK businesses and organisations to understand whether you will be affected and to find out how you need to prepare. It also links to additional guidance about how to improve your data protection knowledge and compliance.
The detailed guidance can be found here:
- Guidance for UK businesses and organisations who have no contacts or customers in Europe.
- Guidance for UK businesses and organisations who send or receive data to or from Europe.
- Guidance for UK businesses and organisations with a European presence or with European customers.
- Guidance for UK businesses and organisations who send or receive data to or from countries outside Europe.
At Markel Law we regularly comment on SME related matters.

This guidance is designed to help small to medium-sized UK businesses and organisations keep personal data flowing with Europe (the EEA) after Brexit. (The EEA is the EU plus Iceland, Norway and Liechtenstein.) If we leave the EU without a deal, most of the data protection rules affecting small to medium-sized businesses and organisations will stay the same.
