EU Representative for GDPR

The GDPR Article 27 introduces the mandatory appointment of an EU representative for organisations that:

  • process personal data of individuals in the EU either by way of offering goods or services to those individuals or else monitoring their behaviour;
  • do not have an office in the EU; and
  • process the personal data of individuals in the EU on a regular basis.

Symmetry can act as a EU representative on behalf of the controller or processor with regard to their obligations under GDPR. Subscribers to our
EU Representative service have access to a remote EU Representative who will serve as a contact point for all issues related to your organisation’s processing of personal data under the GDPR, including being a contact point for supervisory authorities and individuals in the EU.

Virtual EU Representative services

Our EU representative team can perform all the required tasks in GDPR regulations including:

  • Inform and advise your organisation and its staff of their GDPR obligations
  • Maintaining records of processing activities;
  • Establishing an efficient communication with data subjects in one of the 24 local languages of the EU member states
  • Cooperate with the supervisory authorities concerned and act as your organisation’s point of contact

Post-Brexit EU Representation

The UK is expected to leave the EU on 29 March 2019. If your organisation is regularly processing personal data of EU individuals by way of offering goods or services or by monitoring behaviour, and your organisation does not have an office or establishment in the EU, you will need to appoint an EU Representative in order to comply with GDPR Article 27. This appointment will need to be made when the UK leaves the EU (unless alternative agreements are made as part of the Brexit negotiations).

Symmetry can provide your organisation with Brexit EU Representation services and other related GDPR solutions for your post-Brexit data processing.
