The UK Government's current position is that from December 2020, companies without a UK presence who are processing UK citizen data will require a representative to..

* Act as the point of contact for UK data subjects and the UK supervisory authorities.

* Enable UK supervisory authorities to pursue enforcement action where necessary

What Does This Mean for Us?

* Organisations with no presence in the UK or EEA will then need separate representatives in both territories.

* EEA organisations will need a Representative in the UK where they offer goods and services to UK citizens

The Position & Responsibilities of the UK Representative



  • Co-operate with relevant supervisory authorities.

  • Manage conversation between the data subjects and your organisation. 

  • Be accessible to data subjects for requests, queries and complaints. 

  • Maintain a RoPA (Record of Processing Activities) 

  • Facilitate supervisory authorities to contact the Representative in the case of enforcement action for the non compliance of the organisation they represent.
