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 EU Representative under Article 27 of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) if you do not have your own establishment within the EU.
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.
We can act as your EU Representative within the EU, and as your UK Representative, if required
We are headquartered in Dublin, Ireland and have offices in the UK and Switzerland
We have the capability to provide representative services in other EU member states and the UK if the majority of your data subjects are located there, and can provide foreign language services.
