Under GDPR – Do You Need a Representative Office for UK and EU?

In ADP From The Trust Bridge Channel, Data by Mary Kurek

  • Does your organisation offer goods and service internationally?
  • Do you offer goods and services to the UK and/or EU from outside that region?
  • Do you have employees based in the UK or EU?

This workshop will look at the issues of data transfer post-Schrems and post-Brexit, as well as the key issue relating to the need for a representative (under GDPR).  Many companies will now need a UK and an EU nominative representative office, but do they know this? What are the duties of an Art 27 rep and is there a conflict with DPOs?  Our panel will discuss this and also take questions to help you determine if you need an Article 27 rep.

Members of the panel include:
