UK and EU Representative Services
UK REPRESENTATIVE SERVICES
For Organisations who process the personal data of UK residents
At the end of the transition period, under the UK GDPR, data controllers and processors based outside the UK offering goods or services to, or monitoring the behaviour of, UK data subjects must appoint a UK representative.
The UK representative acts as a local contact for data subjects and the ICO in relation to all issues arising from the processing of personal data.
EU REPRESENTATIVE SERVICES
For Organisations whom process the personal data of EU residents
Under Article 27 of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR), organisations that are not established in the EU, but that offer goods or services to or monitor the behaviour of EU residents, must appoint a representative in an EU member state. Therefore, organisations within the US, the UK and the rest of the world should consider whether they require an EU Representative.
The EU Representative service helps organisations meet their obligations under Article 27.
