Roundtable on proposed reform to UK data protection legislation

25 May 2022

Norton Rose Fulbright, London


Roundtable to enable companies and their advisors, to provide feedback and constructive comments to Julia Lopez, DCMS Minister, on the government’s proposals on reforming UK data protection legislation.

Date: Wednesday 25 May 2022
Times: 09.00 to 15.00
Location: Norton Rose Fulbright, London
CPE Credits: up to 4

There is a balance to be struck between making the most of Brexit opportunities and risking the UK’s valuable EU adequacy declaration. Of particular interest is the extent to which UK policy decisions would lead to UK diversion from compatibility with the EU GDPR which provides the common framework for companies operating across the European Economic Area. An update on DCMS discussions with the European Commission on this compatibility issue would be valuable.

The government is considering nearly 3,000 comments to its consultation document, Data: A new direction, and is planning to publish its response and the main lines of its policy decisions in spring 2022.

This Roundtable will follow soon after publication of this new government document. 

To provide a familiar structure to the discussion, the programme follows the lines of the original consultation document.

This interactive Roundtable is an ideal opportunity for you to gain understanding of how your views on the government’s reforms match those of others. While there might be consensus on some issues of the need for change, opinions might vary on others. By attending this event, you will learn the extent to which you are in the mainstream or an outlier.


The speakers are DCMS policy advisors who have worked on developing government policy and will advise the minister:

  • Elisabeth Stafford, Data Protection Reform - Reuse, Research, and Public Sector
  • Emily James, Senior Policy Manager, Domestic Data Protection Policy
  • Robin Edwards, Data Protection Reform Team
