UK welcomes European Commission draft data adequacy decisions

Puzzle with printed EU and UK flags

LONDON (Reuters) – Britain said on Friday it welcomed the European Union’s move to allow continued data flows to Britain after Brexit.

“I welcome the publication of these draft decisions which rightly reflect the UK’s commitment to high data protection standards and pave the way for their formal approval,” said Oliver Dowden, Secretary of State for Digital.

“Although the EU’s progress in this area has been slower than we would have wished, I am glad we have now reached this significant milestone.”
