Why your business needs a UK representative

Post-Brexit, businesses outside the UK will need to designate a UK representative if they provide goods or services to UK residents. This is particularly important in the context of the UK's GDPR and the 2018 Data Protection Act. Exceptions to this rule are rare and narrow in scope.

How to select the most appropriate UK representative for your business?

The selection of a UK representative should be made carefully, taking into account their level of expertise, adaptability to regulatory changes and familiarity with UK-specific regulations. Comprehensive coverage, proactive adaptability and country-specific knowledge are essential.

Key requirements for appointing a UK representative

  • The UK representative must be based within the United Kingdom.
  • A legal mandate is essential to appoint the representative.
  • Record-keeping in line with UK GDPR Article 30 is mandatory.
  • The representative must be authorized to act on behalf of your non-UK based company.

Please note

Although there are limited exceptions to the requirement to appoint a UK representative, these are rarely applicable. Specific criteria, such as infrequent data processing that poses a minimal risk to the rights of individuals, must also be met for a non-UK company to be exempt.
