Useful resource on the new UK GDPR
Law firm Mishcon de Reya has recently published a helpful unofficial versionof the UK GDPR which shows UK GDPR as it exists with all the amendmentsmade and all the 'tracked changes' accepted.
Following the end of the Brexit transition period on 31st December 2020, mechanisms have been put in place to transfer EU legislation into domestic UK law, including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
The UK's primary data protection laws are now the UK GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018. The UK GDPR is the same as the EU GDPR (as that regulation applied in the UK before Brexit), but with numerous edits to enable the legislation to function as a standalone piece of domestic law.
Both pieces of legislation are available on the legislation.gov.uk site, however changes to the texts stemming from the end of the transition period have not yet been applied, which can make reading and understanding the legislation challenging.

As the publisher stresses, while a useful tool, this is an unofficial publication and does not represent a definitive edition of the legislation. However, as a day-to-day resource, ARA members may find this tool helpful until the legislation.gov.uk version has been updated.
