Under the EU GDPR, data controllers and processors outside the EU offering goods or services to, or monitoring the behaviour of, data subjects in the EU must appoint an EU representative. The EU representative acts as a local contact for data subjects and supervisory authorities in relation to all issues arising from the processing of personal data.
All UK organisations that do not have a presence in the EU should consider appointing an EU representative now before the transition period ends on 31 December 2020.
Our annual subscription service is delivered by IT Governance Europe, which will serve as your EU representative, in compliance with Article 27 of the EU GDPR. IT Governance Europe is incorporated and based in the Republic of Ireland.

Non-UK-based data controllers need to appoint a UK representative for dealing with UK data subjects from 1 January 2021 when the transition period has ended.
The UK representative acts as a local contact for data subjects and the UK’s data protection authority, the ICO (Information Commissioner’s Office).
This service applies to single-entity organisations with between 1 and 500 staff. The service can be delivered to organisations in any sector or industry.
For organisations with more than 500 employees or multiple entities, we can provide a bespoke solution to meet your requirements. Please contact us to discuss your needs.
Please note that this service does not include advice or guidance on Article 30 records of processing activities.

We offer legal risk and compliance consultancy advice that you can trust, but without the burden of administrative duties and expenses that law firms must bear in order to carry out certain ‘reserved legal activities’, such as litigation, conveyancing and advocacy.
