Appointed Representative

Do I need to appoint a Representative? Article 27 of the GDPR requires organisations outside the European Economic Area (EEA) that process EEA residents’ data on a regular basis to appoint a Representative. The Representative is required to:

  • Be the point of contact in the EU for data subjects and supervisory authorities from each of the member states
  • Enable supervisory authorities to pursue enforcement actions within the EEA.

After Brexit, the UK will cease to be a member of the EU, therefore:

  • Organisations from outside the EEA who do not have a presence inside the UK will need a Representative in both the EEA and the UK;
  • UK organisations will need a Representative in the EEA;
  • EEA organisations will need a Representatives in the UK;

Bruce & Butler provides:

  • EU Representation to organisations from outside the EEA;
  • UK Representation to organisations from outside the EEA, post Brexit;
  • EU Representation for UK & other organisations outside the EEA, post Brexit
