When BREXIT happens on the 29th of March 2019, there are requirements for organisations that deal with UK citizens to have a Data Protection Representative in the UK.
This is becoming common place in many jurisdictions under modern data protection laws, and it enables the extra-territorial reach laws to be exercised by the regulators.
When the UK was part of the EU, it was operating within the GDPR, once it is no longer part of the EU, it will operate under what has been called the "UK GDPR" a unique set of regulatory rules, that will effectively mean that the UK will become something of a mini-EU.
This means that non-UK businesses that deal with UK Citizens, will be required, under certain circumstances, to put in place a Data Protection Representative in the UK. You can achieve that by visiting the dp.services website, and selecting the BREXIT Data Protection Representative Deals.
