Mr Edward Vaizey - Department for Culture, Media and Sport

My Honourable Friend the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department of Culture, Media and Sport (jointly with the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills) and Minister for Intellectual Property (Baroness Neville-Rolfe) has made the following Written Ministerial Statement.

This Government has decided not to opt-in to the Justice and Home Affairs provision within the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Negotiations on the Regulation were concluded on 15 December 2015 and a proposed final compromise text was communicated to the European Council on 17 December. The final text for the GDPR is expected to be formally adopted in due course.

The compromise text contained wording in article 43a, which triggers the UKs opt-in under protocol 21. This article deals with the recognition and enforcement of judgments, and includes content that falls under article 81 (judicial cooperation in civil matters) and article 82 (judicial cooperation in criminal matters) Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, thereby triggering the UKs JHA opt-in. The text restricts a Member State from enforcing a judgment requiring the transfer or disclosure of personal data where there is no international agreement or treaty.

As a result of concerns relating to the integrity of the UK legal system, the UK will not exercise the opt-in to the parts of Article 43a which trigger the Protocol 21.
