Frequently Asked Questions

Under UK law, more precisely Article 27 of the UK-GDPR, non-UK based businesses have to appoint a representative in the UK in case they are offering goods or services to individuals in the UK or if they are monitoring their behaviour. The UK-GDPR requirement mirrors the requirement in the EU-GDPR. The requirements that establish an obligation to appoint a representative are quite low. The UK representative can be an individual, a company or an organisation. The appointment of the representative needs to be in writing. Furthermore, the representative has to be identifiable. This means they must be mentioned in the privacy policy or in the information provided to data subjects before each collection of data, see Article 13 UK-GDPR. It is also mandatory that supervisory authorities (e.g. the ICO) can easily find out who your representative is, for example by publishing it on your website. Having a representative will not affect your own responsibility or liability under the UK GDPR. Public authorities or organisations which only process data occasionally or at low risk do not need a representative pursuant Article 27 (2) of the UK GDPR.

Note the representative is required as of January 2021, i.e. after the end of the transition period.

The UK Representative must be based in the UK. As a result, as of January 1st, 2021, EU-based companies and organisations need a UK representative and UK-based companies and organisations need to appoint an EU representative. Companies or organisations which are neither located in the UK nor the EU need to appoint a UK and an EU representative in order to comply with the UK-GDPR and the EU-GDPR.
If a company or organisation fails to appoint a representative, fines may be imposed. The fine is 2% of the global turnover or £8.7 million, whichever is higher.
