UK to scrap web cookie requests in post-Brexit data revamp

The UK will scrap web cookie requests as part of a major package of reforms that will replace the EU’s data laws with a new post-Brexit regime.

The GDPR is an EU Regulation and, in principle, it will no longer apply to the UK from the end of the transition period. However, if you operate inside the UK, you will need to comply with UK data protection law.

Culture secretary Oliver Dowden today unveiled a string of new measures designed to harness the power of data to drive growth and create jobs. The move will see large parts of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) scrapped in a bid to cut down on red tape and deliver a so-called Brexit dividend.

Estimates suggest there is as much as £11 billion worth of trade that goes unrealised around the world due to barriers associated with data transfers*.
