Planning for a 'no deal' Brexit?

Whilst uncertainty in Westminster politics continues, institutions are planning and preparing both for the new term and for the possibility of a “no deal” Brexit. It remains to be seen how the situation at Westminster will develop in the next few weeks.  Whilst there are a number of ways in which a “no deal” scenario can be avoided, a “no deal” exit remains the default position at 11pm on 31 October in the absence of an agreement with the EU or an extension to the article 50 process. 

If you need assistance with preparations, there are a range of materials to assist with planning for a no deal Brexit on Mills & Reeve’s Brexit hub.  These include an analysis of the data protection position, the impact on litigation and a range of other material.

Practical steps to help ensure data flows can continue even in a “no deal” scenario are summarised in our Brexit risk register document for data protection.
