In this Resolution, members of the European Parliament (MEPs) view that the Commission would be going beyond its implementing powers if it adopts the draft UK adequacy decisions without having addressed all the concerns expressed in the Resolution. The Parliament also requests national data protection authorities to suspend the transfer of personal data which might be subject to indiscriminate access by UK intelligence authorities, if the Commission were to adopt its adequacy decisions without having addressed all the concerns raised.

Some of the concerns raised by the Parliament are similar to those raised by the EDPB earlier on 13 April 2021. It is yet to be seen how the EU Parliament responds to all of the raised concerns.

Our experts at Securiti will continue to monitor any developments in connection to the final UK adequacy decision to help you prepare for compliance.
