Article 27 Representative

Let us take the worry out of managing your requirements under Article 27 of the GDPR.

If your organisation is located outside the EU but is offering goods or services to individuals in the EU, or monitoring their behaviour, and you are processing their personal data for those purposes, then the chances are that you will need to appoint an Article 27 Representative under the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) if you do not have your own establishment within the EU.

What is an Article 27 Representative?

If your organisation is based outside the EU but GDPR applies to you, and you do not have your own establishment within the EU, Article 27 of the GDPR mandates you to appoint a representative within the EU. There are limited exceptions to this requirement.

The function of the representative is to:

hold your records of data processing activity

act on your behalf in relation to data protection matters in the EU

act as the first port of call for the local supervisory authorities in relation to compliance action

act as a portal for the receipt of requests from individual data subjects in connection with their data protection rights.
