ICO consults on how organisations can continue to protect personal data when it is transferred outside of the UK

August 2021

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has confirmed that it has launched a public consultation on its draft international data transfer agreement (IDTA) and guidance.

Firms which wish, or need, to transfer personal data outside of the UK need to be aware of the Consultation and should consider responding.  The ICO is also asking for views on any relevant privacy rights, legal, economic or policy considerations and implications.  Responses will help the regulator understand the practical impact of proposed approaches on organisations.
