EU REPRESENTATIVE SERVICE
EU REPRESENTATIVE SERVICE
We help organisations located outside of the EU comply with Article 27 of GDPR by providing a cost-effective EU Representative service allowing you to trade compliantly within the GDPR data protection act .
Appointing an EU representative
Organisations outside the EU that offer goods or services to individuals in the EU or monitor their behaviour will generally have to appoint a representative established in an EU member state. The representative acts on your behalf in relation to your personal data processing activities and acts as a local contact for data subjects and supervisory authorities.
How and Who to Appoint as a Representative
According to GDPR Article 27(1), the appointment of an EU Representative for companies without an office within the EU must be made in writing. The written agreement or the contract should at least state the rights and obligations of the Representative. An oral appointment of the Representative is absolutely not allowed. The Representative may be a natural or a legal person, i.e. a company.
We help organisations located outside of the UK and Europe trade compliantly under article 27 of GDPR. Organisations that fail to appoint a UK Representative or EU Representative face enforcement action from the authoritative bodies regardless of where they are geographically based.
We have a range of EU Representative services allowing large and small organisations to comply with article 27 and trade compliantly.
When you appoint Relentless Consultant as your nominated EU Representative we will conduct an assessment of your structured documentation, technological resilience and organisational awareness within our GDPR Assessment Service
