    The EU agreed to further postpone Brexit until 31 January 2020, the so-called “withdrawal date”. Before such date there will be parliamentary elections in the UK on 12 December 2019.

The new postponement gives companies some extra time to look at the possible data transfer mechanisms for implementation after the withdrawal date.
