Nominated Representative Services
A Nominated Representative is a liaison between a Data Controller based outside the EU or the UK and their customers (or other data subjects) or regulators in the EU (or UK).
Castlebridge provides Nominated Representative services for non-EU entities operating in the EU and for entities outside the UK who require a representative in the UK.
Our service has been designed to be cost effective and to provide appropriate supports to our clients and their customers.
EU Nominated Representative
Castlebridge can help data controllers without an establishment in the EU meet their compliance obligations through the provision of a cost-effective nominated representative service.
As your nominated representative we:
- Liaise with EU data subjects in respect to queries about your data processing activities
- Support you in maintaining an appropriate set of policies, procedures, and controls to ensure compliance with GDPR and other relevant EU legislation
- Act as a point of contact between you and EU Data Protection Authorities.
We can also help you determine alternative approaches to ensuring and simplifying compliance, including developing a “main establishment” in the EU.
UK Nominated Representative
The UK’s Data Protection Act 2018 transposed the GDPR in to UK law. As part of that, the UK replicated the requirement for nominated representatives. Entities outside the UK that are processing personal data of people in the UK will, in certain circumstances, require a nominated representative.
Castlebridge provides UK nominated representative services through our UK-registered sister company Ethidata Ltd.
