Post the Brexit that resulted in the non-applicability of EU GDPR, the new UK GDPR was enforced. However, it is important to note that most of the GDPR regulation is retained in the new legislation including the key principles, rights, and obligations. But again this is while accommodating the domestic UK law and with some significant amendmentsin the GDPR Regulationfor building the new UK GDPR Regulation. So, organizations dealing with the personal data of citizens of the UK are required to comply with UK GDPR requirements and ensure compliance.
