GRC International Group releases new services to help companies manage Brexit


GRC International Group is proud to announce its GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) EU and UK Representative Services for all organisations that need to appoint an EU or UK representative before the Brexit transition period ends on 31 December 2020.

Under the EU GDPR, data controllers and processors outside of the EU that offer goods or services to EU data subjects must appoint an EU representative. This is also the case if an organisation monitors the behaviour of EU citizens, and vice versa for non-UK-based data controllers who will need to appoint a UK representative for dealing with UK data subjects.

GRC International Group’s EU and UK Representative Services are fast, efficient and affordable services that allow organisations to easily and quickly meet their compliance obligations under Article 27 of the GDPR.

The services are offered as annual subscriptions which are sold through GRCI Law, a GRC International Group subsidiary, and packages can be tailored to suit organisations of every size and budget with a variety of subscription levels available:

  • Micro Subscription: 1 - 10 employees
  • Standard Subscription: 11- 250 employees
  • Corporate Subscription: 251 - 500 employees
  • Bespoke Subscription: 501+ employees or multiple entities

These efficient and expert-driven services will support organisations and ensure all obligations are met under both UK and EU regulations. GRCI Law will:

  • Act as a local point of contact for data subjects and the relevant supervisory authorities on all matters relating to the processing of personal data.
  • Hold and maintain a record of the organisation’s processing activities following Article 30 of the EU GDPR and, on request, make the record available to relevant supervisory authorities.
  • Facilitate communications between the organisation and its data subjects.
  • Facilitate communications between the organisation and supervisory authorities.
  • Co-operate with supervisory authorities on an organisation’s behalf where required.
