GDPR & Research
Information regarding the United Kingdom: As of January 1, 2021, the UK will have completed its transition period to leave the European Union and the GDPR will then no longer apply to the UK. The UK government has, however, “said that it intends to incorporate the GDPR into UK data protection law from the end of the transition period – so in practice there will be little change to the core data protection principles, rights and obligations found in the GDPR.” UK ICO Data Protection at the end of the Transition Period. The primary applicable law will be the UK Data Protection Act 2018 (the UK DPA).
We will be revising the GDPR resources for researchers to include references to the UK DPA. Until those revisions are complete, please continue to use the GDPR resources provided below for UK related research and consult with the GDPR Data Privacy Team.
