A Data Protection Officer (DPO) and an EU Representative perform very different, but important, roles.

A DPO works to ensure your business is compliant with the GDPR. They often work and communicate with the public and are invaluable to teams who process lots of personal data. A DPO could act as your EU Representative, but this is not recommended.

This is due to a possible conflict of interests within the role and the workload this dual-role would cause. It will be far simpler and effective for a business to separate these roles to ensure not only having a strong DPO lead but also secure EU representation.
