EU Representative Offices Under the GDPR:
When They Are Needed and What They Must Do

Webinar • Tuesday, May 14, 2019 • 2:00 - 3:30 PM ET | Qualifies for 1.5 CAE and 1.5 CPE


Last May, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) changed rules inside Europe. It also affected organizations based outside the EU, requiring them to appoint a “Nominated European Representative.”

A year later, North American associations and nonprofits continue to violate those rules. In fact, they don’t even realize the rules apply to them, which they do because they provide products or services in the EU.

Noncompliance can be costly and not having a European office means no one is championing your interests in the EU. Here’s how to understand exactly what’s required and what’s to your advantage.
