On September 21, 2023, the UK and the U.S. announced the UK extension to the EU-US Data Privacy Framework, which will come into effect on October 12. A new UK Adequacy Regulation provides that the UK Secretary of State for Science, Innovation, and Technology has determined that the U.S. provides adequate levels of protection for personal data in certain transfers and brings the UK within the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework (DPF) announced in July 2023. The US Attorney General also designated the UK as a “qualifying state” under an Executive Order on September 18 for the purposes of the DPF. This means that from October 12, UK businesses will be able to transfer personal data to US organizations self-certified under the DPF.
