EDPO participated in the Belgian Economic Mission to the United Kingdom in London, Oxford and Cambridge (8 to 12 May):

EDPO is delighted to have participated in the Belgian Economic Mission to the United Kingdom last week. A few days full of opportunities! We were able to achieve one of our most important goals: raising awareness on the GDPR forgotten obligation to appoint a Representative amongst Belgian and UK companies alike.

We were honoured to be given the opportunity to tell the story of EDPO and EDPO UK Ltd in doing business with the UK at the VBO/FEB Success Story Breakfast in the presence of Her Royal Highness Princess Astrid of Belgium.

EDPO also signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Belgian-Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce in Great Britain (BLCC) that aims to foster close collaboration regarding GDPR compliance of UK companies active in Belgium & the EU. We are thrilled to work on reinforcing our presence in the UK every day with the help of the BLCC.

Last but not least, EDPO attended two stimulating days of seminars in Oxford and Cambridge to discuss the GDPR in the context of the health industry with life sciences companies. Our team took the opportunity to meet with some of our trusted local partners, and to enjoy a fun show at the Phoenix theatre too.

Thank you and all organisers who made this mission a great success!
