What is a UK representative and why’s it important to have one?

Complying with UK GDPR sometimes requires having a UK representative. That is, an individual or organization that is established in the UK and represents your data privacy obligations under UK GDPR.

But how do you know if your organization needs a UK representative?

If your organization is based outside of the UK, has no branch, office or other establishment in the UK and meets either of these two criteria - it is considered mandatory to have a UK representative:
  • Offer goods or services to individuals in the UK
  • Monitor the behaviour of individuals in the UK
Understanding responsibilities

Your UK representative will be your go-to liaison for all UK GDPR compliance matters.

It’s important that the individual or organization you assign as your UK representative has extensive experience and familiarity with UK GDPR regulation to avoid any regulatory shortfalls.

Local point of contact

Your UK representative acts as a local point of contact for data subjects and the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) on all matters related to the processing of personal data.

Record keeping

Your UK representative is responsible for holding and maintaining a record of your processing activities in accordance with Article 30 of the UK GDPR.

Streamlines communication

Your UK representative facilitates communication between your organization, data subjects, and the ICO whenever its needed.

Legal representative

Your UK representative will be there to co-operate, support, and represent your organization with the ICO when required.

Commonly asked questions on UK representatives.

What is the UK representative service?

The UK representative service (in the context of UK GDPR compliance) refers to the requirement for certain organizations outside of the UK to appoint a representative within the UK. This is for organizations that process personal data of individuals in the UK in connection with offering goods or services, or monitoring their behavior.

Do I need a UK representative?

It may be necessary for your organization to appoint a UK representative if you do not have a presence in the UK but process personal data of individuals in the UK. This requirement applies under the UK GDPR and mirrors the EU GDPR's provisions for appointing an EU representative.

Does GDPR apply in the UK?

GDPR applied in the UK before Brexit. However, post-Brexit, the UK has its own version of the GDPR, known as the UK GDPR, which largely mirrors the EU GDPR with some specific adaptations. Organizations located in the UK or targeting the UK market must comply with their version of the GDPR

Can a UK representative be the same person as a EU representative?

Yes, the same person can fulfill the roles of both UK representative and EU representative if the organization processes personal data of individuals in both the UK and the EU. This allows for streamlined communication and compliance efforts across both jurisdictions, provided the individual can effectively manage the responsibilities of each role.

What does a UK representative do?

A UK representative’s responsibilities vary from organization to organization. The UK representative would be primarily responsible for supporting the business in achieving GDPR compliance.

Who manages GDPR in the UK? Who is the UK regulatory body for data protection?

The regulatory body for data protection in the UK is the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO). It's an independent authority that oversees compliance with data protection regulations, including the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), Data Protection Act 2018, and related laws.
