CRIMINAL RECORDS - EXCHANGE OF INFORMATION BETWEEN MEMBER STATES

Progress at last on elements of the EU’s long-heralded package of measures .

The Framework Decision on taking into account of convictions in the Member States of the EU in the course of new criminal proceedings (proposed in 2005) was adopted in July; and agreement is expected on Commission proposal COM(2005)0690 (on organisation and content of criminal record data). The Commission has also recently proposed a Council Decision on the establishment of the European Criminal Records Information System (ECRIS) (COM(2008) 332 final).
