EU and UK Representation Services Required by GDPR Article 27 and the NIS Regulations

The service provides you access to an experienced GDPR Representative from our team of qualified GDPR and data protection professionals who can liaise with supervisory authorities, handle Data Subject Access Requests (DSARs) and maintain Records of Processing Activities (RoPA).

You benefit from our GDPR Representation service being delivered by our experienced and knowledgeable team, and in an extremely cost-effective way that is backed by the support, shared best practice and model documentation developed from the DPO Centre’s experience of working with over 300 organisations.

If you are a North American, non-EU or non-UK based organization then the service provides you access to an established and experienced GDPR representation service across the UK and all EU member states from our team of qualified GDPR and data protection professionals. The Representative can liaise with supervisory authorities, supervise Data Subject Access Requests (DSARs), build and maintain Records of Processing Activities (RoPA).

The DPO Centre provides:

  • EU Representation to organisations from outside the EEA
  • UK representation to organizations from outside the EEA, post Brexit

 

After Brexit, The DPO Centre will (assuming it is required) also provide:

  • EU Representation to UK organisations through our Dublin, Ireland office and offices across all 27 other EU member states
  • UK Representation to EU organisations through our London office

TERRITORIAL SCOPE

The final terms of Brexit will determine territorial requirements for GDPR and NIS Representation. Whatever the outcome, the DPO Centre can provide GDPR and NIS representation either:

  • Pre Brexit, we can provide representation for organisations in the UK or any other country within the EU through our London office
  • After Brexit, representation and translation services within the EU will be provided through our Dublin or other EU city offices

The DPO Centre provides local representation and translation services both in the UK and any of the 27 member states across continental Europe.

This includes a physical address in any member state to use on your privacy policy and a local telephone number answered in the native language.

You can always remain compliant with Article 27 of the GDPR even if you only process the personal data of data subjects that reside in a specific EU member state.

LOCAL REPRESENTATION IN THE UK AND ACROSS ANY OF THE OTHER 27 MEMBER STATES

If the data you process or the service you provide is directed at data subjects that reside in a specific member state or states, we can also provide local representation services in the UK and any of the 27 member states across continental Europe. Where this is required, you will be provided with our physical address in that member state to publish on your privacy policy, together with a local telephone number answered in the local language. Any email correspondence will, where necessary, pass through our professional proxy online translation service, meaning we receive requests in English, then return them via the service to arrive in the local language, therefore enabling us to deliver our service, seamlessly, in all the major Worldwide languages.

NO-BREXIT-NO-FEE

Given the current uncertainties around Brexit, we also offer a “no-Brexit-no-fee” pledge whereby you can enter into an agreement to provide the service, and therefore have everything required in place prior to the Brexit deadline, but on the express basis that no fees will be due unless an applicable Brexit outcome is reached.

Put your EU and UK representation requirements in place with The DPO Centre straightaway and we will

  • Put an agreement in place that covers all eventualities
  • Only charge the fee relevant to the eventual outcome
  • Cancel the UK representation contract if Brexit is reversed
