There is speculation as to whether the change in administration in the US may potentially serve to undermine the legal viability of the Privacy Shield framework. For example where Presidential executive orders lead to enhanced data sharing of data about EU nationals and/or reduced protections for EU citizens under US law.

The UK will ratify the Agreement on a Unified Patent Court (UPC), ending months of speculation, following the decision of the UK to leave the EU on 23 June. The decision still leaves questions unanswered however. The UPC and Unitary Patent system has been thought to require their participants to be EU Member States (although the UPC would not itself be an EU body). Upon exit from the EU, and without guarantees of long-term participation, the UK therefore faces the risk of being forced to leave the UPC and Unitary Patent; a considerable disruption and for businesses using the system
