GDPR Representative

  • Updated

GDPR Article 27 requires in-scope companies to maintain a physical presence in the EU or UK if they process the personal data of EU or UK residents. Failure to do so can result in penalties and fines.

  1. The representative shall be established in one of the Member States where the data subjects, whose personal data are processed in relation to the offering of goods or services to them, or whose behaviour is monitored, are.
  2. The representative shall be mandated by the controller or processor to be addressed in addition to or instead of the controller or the processor by, in particular, supervisory authorities and data subjects, on all issues related to processing, for the purposes of ensuring compliance with this Regulation.
