As with all policy areas, the UK will control our own data protection laws and regulations in line with our interests, after the end of the transition period.

We want our data protection law to remain fit for purpose, and to support the future objectives of the UK. The UK will continue to operate a high-quality regime that promotes high data protection standards, growth and innovation, and underpins the trustworthy use of data as the UK economy becomes increasingly digital and data-enabled.
