Gaps remain in the final group of No Deal Notices

Commenting on the release of the final batch of No Deal Technical Notices, techUK Deputy CEO Antony Walker, said:

“While there is useful detail in this final batch of notices, huge gaps remain for tech companies. For instance, there is no mention in any of the notices of how UK-US data flows would be enabled if the UK were to suddenly fall out of the EU-US Privacy Shield arrangement in a No Deal scenario.

“The final batch of notices does provide more detail on some core issues facing tech businesses. In particular, the continued operation of geo-blocking; the formation and operation of subsidiaries in the EU; and what level of protection consumers can expect. Despite the gaps, it is important that all businesses, large and small, properly digest each of these notices.

“These notices again make it very clear that No Deal would be a very bad outcome for UK tech companies. The UK and the EU must do everything in their power to reach a deal and avoid the mutual damage a No Deal situation would create.”
