An organisation may appoint one or a team of persons to be its DPO. Organisations are free to assess and decide, according to their needs, whether the DPO function should be a dedicated responsibility or an additional function within an existing role in the organisation. Once appointed, the DPO may in turn delegate certain responsibilities to other officers.
Organisations with manpower or capability constraints can also consider outsourcing parts of the DPO function to a service provider. Do note, however, that the DPO function is management’s responsibility and that the outsourcing service should cover only the operational aspects of the DPO function.

Organisations should take time to assess their needs before appointing a person suitable for the role of a DPO.
