Do you need a representative?

If you are a controller or processor located outside of the UK you will need a GDPR Representative.

If you are not based in the UK and are offering goods or services to people in the UK, irrespective of whether or not they are paid for or if you are monitoring the behaviour of people in the UK, then you are likely required to comply with the UK GDPR. If you don’t have any establishments in the UK then you are required, subject to a few exemptions, to designate a Representative. The obligation applies to both controllers and processors.

A Representative is simply a local point of contact for the ICO: someone to represent your interests if the ICO or anyone else wants to contact you about the processing you undertake.
