Position Paper
Joint letter on the free flow of personal data post-Brexit

Insurance Europe sent a joint letter to the European Commission calling for legal certainty about the transfer of personal data between the UK and the EU and the European Economic Area (EEA) ahead of the Brexit to avoid business disruption and adverse effects for European consumers. The letter was also signed by DigitalEurope, the Trans-Atlantic Business Council and the European Association of Craft, Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (UEAPME).

Considering the importance of personal data flows between the EU/EEA and the UK, Insurance Europe also sent a joint letter to the British authorities calling on them, on the one hand, to ensure that the UK meets all the conditions for the Commission to issue swiftly an adequacy decision, and on the other hand, to implement a suitable legal solution that will allow continuity of personal data transfer from the UK to the EU/EEA post-Brexit. The letter was also signed by the Association of British Insurers (ABI), the Trans-Atlantic Business Council and UEAPME.
