Selling From the UK into the EU after Brexit

Wednesday 10 March 2021 (11.00 - 11.45am) with David Fagan

After years of uncertainty surrounding what GDPR would look like post Brexit, the trade agreement signed last Christmas Eve has left the UK with a hard GDPR border. It has however also secured a temporary transfer period for the transfer of EU data to the UK: the “Bridge”. 

This webinar is packed with useful information that explains:

  • What you need to do to sell in the EU
  • Article 27 – David will explain what is involved, and attendees will be given a voucher entitling them to 50% off the sign-up fee for an Article 27 service.
  • What does the Bridge mechanism mean? What will replace it?
  • What other steps you must take to be compliant?

 David Fagan has 25 years of experience dealing with EU data protection as a commercial lawyer acting for international companies and EU institutions. Join David and Scott Alexander, Legal Island, as they discuss data protection matters for businesses selling their products in the EU and Ireland.
