International: UK Government finalizes first law enforcement data adequacy decision
On July 7, 2023, the UK Government finalized the first law enforcement adequacy decision, since leaving the EU, for the Bailiwick of Guernsey, through legislation in Parliament. The UK Government noted that the adequacy decision allows UK law enforcement authorities to freely transfer personal data to authorities in Guernsey for law enforcement purposes. In particular, according to the UK Government, the adequacy decision allows the transfer of personal data from the UK without additional safeguards/authorizations and guarantees strong privacy laws in Guernsey that will afford protection to UK citizens' personal data and rights.
The UK Government is also in the process of assessing the law enforcement data adequacy for the Bailiwick of Jersey and the Isle of Man, which will be completed in the near future.
