Managing Personal Data

In the event the UK leaves the EU without a deal, any organisation that receives personal data from organisations in the EU - including addresses in delivery details, personnel files and intra-company transfers of customer details - will need to take steps to ensure these transfers can legally continue. Officials from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) are hosting a WebEx seminar to talk through steps organisations should take.

Employing EU Citizens and Providing Services to the EU

Thursday 10 October, 11:30am

To help businesses understand how they need to prepare, officials from the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and the Home Office are hosting a WebEx seminar. The Home Office will be presenting on the EU Settlement Scheme. The presentation will cover background to the Scheme, as well as employers’ rights and obligations. BEIS will also be providing information on the recently announced European Temporary Leave to Remain scheme. The presentation will also cover information on services to EU based clients and exporting services to the EU.

When the UK leaves the EU, UK businesses and professionals will be treated as originating from a ‘third country’ and will not have the same level of access to EU markets. Investment in EU businesses or the establishment of businesses within the EU will also be affected.

At this session, BEIS will outline new rules you may need to comply with if the UK leaves the EU without a deal, focusing on:

  • Market access (including remote access)
  • Recognition of professional qualifications
  • Business travel
