B&B - EU & UK REPRESENTATION SERVICE

Client Portal

THE SERVICE

Bruce & Butler provides local representation and translation services both in the UK and any of the 27 member states across continental Europe.

  • During Transition period, we can provide representation for organisations in the UK or any other country within the EU through our Sheffield Office.
  • After 31st December 2020, representation services within the EU will be provided through our Dublin office. This includes a physical address in any member state to use on your privacy policy and a local telephone number answered in the native language.

You can always remain compliant with Article 27 of the GDPR even if you only process the personal data of data subjects that reside in the UK or a specific EU member state

WHAT DOES THE LAW SAY?

After 31st December 2020, at the end of the transition period, Data Controllers or Data Processors located outside the UK that process the personal data of individuals within the UK will need to appoint a “UK Representative”.

EU law will continue to require organisations based outside the EEA (including the UK) that process data on individuals within the EU, to have an “EU Representative”. If an organisation processes personal data of data subjects residing in a limited number of EU states, then its Representative should have a presence in one of those states.

The appointed representative cannot be your Data Protection Officer.

THE ROLE OF THE REPRESENTATIVE

Your representative may be an individual, or a company or organisation established in the EEA, and must be able to represent you regarding your obligations under the EU GDPR.

You should give details of your representative to EEA-based individuals whose personal data you are processing. This may be done by including them in your privacy notice or in the upfront information you give them when you collect their data. You must also make it easily accessible to supervisory authorities – for example by publishing it on your website.

The Representative is required to:

  • Cooperate with the Supervisory Authorities;
  • Facilitate communication between data subjects and your organisation;
  • Be readily accessible to data subjects in all relevant member states; and
  • Maintain a Record of Processing Activity  under Article 30 requirements.
