Article 27 of the GDPR

EU Representative
Pursuant to Article 27 GDPR

Why You Need an EU Representative

Article 27 of the GDPR includes the requirement for companies that provide goods and services to EU citizens should provide an EU based Representative so that data subjects and Regulators can easily contact companies to raise data protection issues or concerns. So, if you have customers, employees, or suppliers in either the UK or the EU you will need a Representative to act as your agent in each territory. Now that the UK has left the EU, UK companies also need an EU representative if the sell goods or services to EU/EEA citizens.
