EU GDPR membership and countries outside of the membership

Concerning the EU GDPR membership and countries outside of the membership;

1. the EU GDPR will be mirrored by the UK-GDPR version - would this be subject to regular reviews?
2. hypothetically, if the EU were to break up - would the GDPR be able to continue under a unified, but individual country membership?

I live in the *** and hope this does not become a reality.

Concerning the EU GDPR membership and countries outside of the membership;The EU GDPR will be mirrored by the UK-GDPR version - would this be subject to regular reviews?

The UK chose to mirror the EU GDPR in order to have an adequate decision by the EU Commission and not lose the free flow of data among EU and UK. It is difficult to forecast regular reviews, either on the EU GDPR or the UK GDPR side.We can imagine a coherent evolution for both regulations in order to provide a standard to controllers and processors, but most will depend on how the relationship between the UK and the EU will continue.

Hypothetically, if the EU were to break up - would the GDPR be able to continue under a unified, but individual country membership?I live in the UK (Scotland) and hope this does not become a reality.

The EU GDPR is a regulation of the EU and it produces effects in Member State on the basis of the EU Treaties. In the unlikely event of EU break up, the Treaties will not produce their effects anymore and the GDPR will have no effects in the former EU States unless the country mirrors it with internal legislation. The negotiation on the dissolving EU may also end with an international agreement adopting the GDPR as a separate treaty in order to benefit each State of the same regulation.
