What effect will Brexit have on Projectfusion?

By June 29, 2016 No Comments

Now that the U.K. has voted to leave the E.U we want to reassure our customers that this won’t affect our ability to continue providing our services to you.

A leave vote will not have an immediate impact on Projectfusion.

For the UK to leave the EU it has to invoke an agreement called Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty

Cameron or his successor needs to decide when to invoke this – that will then set in motion the formal legal process of withdrawing from the EU, and give the UK two years to negotiate its withdrawal. The article has only been in force since late 2009 and it hasn’t been tested yet, so no-one really knows how the Brexit process will work.EU law still stands in the UK until it ceases being a member – and that process could take some time. The UK will continue to abide by EU treaties and laws, but not take part in any decision-making, as it negotiates a withdrawal agreement and the terms of its relationship with the now 27 nation bloc.

The exit process from the EU is unprecedented, and we expect it to take at least 12 months to exit. 

Can Projectfusion keep my data within the EU after the UK exits?

Yes, before the UK formally exits we will be able to offer hosting in mainland Europe, and use a contract with model clauses if we are required to download data to the UK for e.g. Closing bibles.

Can I move my service to mainland Europe now?

Yes – get in touch –  we will shortly be able to offer this at no extra charge. 

Where would you like to host?

We’re looking at offering hosting in Germany or Dublin – do you have any preferred location  Let us know!

If you have any concerns please do get in touch via email sales@projectfusion.com or call +44 (0) 207 183 1245
