Many businesses are unsure of what will happen through the transition period, especially those that trade within the EEA. The ICO has released new information that should help businesses understand what they need to do to get ready for the end of the transition. Here is the ICO's response to whether businesses need a European representative during the transition period:

No, during the transition period you do not need to appoint a representative in the EEA. However, you may need to appoint a representative from the end of the transition period if you are offering goods or services to individuals in the EEA or monitoring the behaviour of individuals in the EEA.
