European or EU Representation

What’s happening on 1st January 2021?

We all know that the UK finally, in less than three months time, leaves the EU on 1st January 2021 but did you know that this also means we leave the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR)? And what implications this has for UK businesses conducting affairs in the EU?

As of 1st January 2021, Article 27 of the EU GDPR will apply to all UK private companies that;

  • Have no offices, branches or other establishments in the European Economic Area (EEA – EU plus – other allied countries);
  • Are offering goods or services to individuals in the EEA or monitoring the behaviour of individuals in the EEA on an ongoing, rather than occasional basis.

These UK companies will need to appoint a Representative that:

  • Acts as the point of contact for data subjects and supervisory authorities; and
  • Enables supervisory authorities to pursue enforcement actions within the territories

This is set out in more detail by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), the supervisory body for Data Protection in the UK. As compliance experts, our team can help to explain and ensure you are not falling foul of the regulation.
