Brexit: EU cyber security certification call for views

12 September 2019

Have your say on the proposed approach to cyber security certification following EU exit

The European Union (EU) Cyber Security Act entered into force on 27 June 2019. The Act establishes a cyber security certification framework under which EU-wide cyber security certification schemes will be developed and implemented in future.

The UK is committed to maintaining a close relationship with the EU on cyber security following its departure from the EU, and will seek to cooperate on approaches to cyber security certification with the EU.

The UK will seek to enter into negotiations with the EU on mutual recognition arrangements, where it seems reasonable to do so and subject to agreement with the EU.

With this in mind, the government is seeking views on this proposed approach. They would welcome views and any supporting evidence on this proposal.
