EU Cyber Security Certification (EU Exit) Call for Views

A call for views on the proposed approach to cyber security certification following the UK’s departure from the EU.



The EU Cyber Security Act entered into force on 27th June 2019. The Cyber Security 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 our departure from the EU, and will seek to cooperate on approaches to cyber security certification with the EU. The UK will therefore 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.
