Do you need a GDPR Representative?

Why should I appoint a GDPR Representative?

The main reason for appointing a Representative is to ensure that requests from individuals and supervisory authorities are handled in an effective manner that is fully compliant with the data protection regulations. This helps to avoid potential penalties and can also help to enhance trust in your brand, protect your reputation and provide a competitive advantage.

How Our GDPR Representative Service Works

As your GDPR Representative, we act as your point of contact in the UK and/or the EU. The Representative plays a pivotal role as the bridge between your organisation and the diverse stakeholders in the UK/EU, including data subjects and authorities. Appointing a Representative is mandatory for most companies located outside the UK/EU that want to do business in the EU/UK as specified in Article 27 of the GDPR (more information in the FAQ below).

Privacy Experts Ready to Respond

We believe that a GDPR Representative should be the least of your worries. When you engage ASSUREMORE as your GDPR Representative, you can have complete confidence that you are fulfilling your obligations under Article 27 GDPR. Furthermore, you gain access to a dedicated team of privacy experts ready to respond to any request. Our experts have extensive experience in the field of privacy and data protection. Notably, their background includes the Life Sciences industry, which enables them to support Life Sciences companies optimally and align their responses and actions with your processes, GxP requirements, and quality system.

A Tailored Approach to Fit Your Needs

At ASSUREMORE, we value long-term relationships, and invest in getting to know your organisation from the outset. Our service starts with an onboarding assessment, where we look into your operational activities, identify how we can support you most effectively, and flag any significant compliance risks. We also appoint a lead contact person that is at your service at any time necessary. Upon formalising the Representative appointment through a signed mandate form, we are ready to go. We provide you with a certificate showing that you have appointed us as GDPR Representative, which you can share with your partners. We also provide regular reports about requests each quarter – or more often if needed.

    Article 27 of the UK GDPR mandates that companies that target their goods or services into the UK, or monitor UK data subjects, but do not have a UK based establishment must appoint a Representative based in the UK. The Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) is the supervisory authority in the UK and further details are available on their website.
  • What does ASSUREMORE's Representative Service include?
    Our GDPR Representative acts on your behalf as the local point of contact for data subjects and the data protection supervisory authorities. We also maintain records of processing activities (ROPA) and make these available to the supervisory authorites upon request. We provide you with a certificate to help demonstrate your compliance and assist you with updating your privacy notices to help ensure full compliance with Article 27 of the GDPR.
  • Do you need to appoint UK and EU Representatives?
    If your company does not have a UK or EEA establishment and targets your goods or services into the UK and Europe, or monitors UK and EU data subjects, then you need to appoint a Representative based in the UK and also in one of the European member states. ​ Further details on the EU GDPR is available from the European Commission - Data Protection in the EU.
