PURPOSE: launch of the automated data exchange with regard to DNA data in United Kingdom.

PROPOSED ACT: Council implementing decision.

ROLE OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT: the Council adopts the act after consulting the European Parliament but without being obliged to follow its opinion.

BACKGROUND: Council Decision 2008/615/JHA on the stepping up of cross-border cooperation, particularly in combating terrorism and cross-border crime, confers implementing powers upon the Council with a view to adopting measures necessary to implement that Decision, in particular as regards the receiving and supply of personal data provided for under that Decision. The supply of personal data provided for under that Decision may not take place until the general provisions on data protection set out in that Decision have been implemented in the national law of the territories of the Member States involved in such supply.

Pursuant to Decision 2008/616/JHA , the United Kingdom replied to a questionnaire on data protection and a questionnaire on DNA data exchange. It conducted a successful pilot test with Austria and Germany. An evaluation visit took place in the United Kingdom and the Austrian, German and French evaluation teams prepared a report on the visit.

On the basis of the evaluation report submitted to the Council, the Council concluded on 11 October 2018 that the United Kingdom has fully implemented the general provisions on data protection set out in Decision 2008/615/JHA.

CONTENT: the purpose of the draft implementing Council Decision is to entitle the United Kingdom, for the purposes of automated searching and comparison of DNA data, to receive and supply personal data pursuant to Decision 2008/615/JHA.

Furthermore, the Council requested that the United Kingdom review, within 12 months of the launching of the automated data exchange, its policy of excluding suspects’ profiles from automated DNA data exchange, in the light of operational experience with Prüm DNA data exchange and of the explanations in the evaluation visit report.

The United Kingdom, Ireland and Denmark are participating in the adoption of the proposed Decision.
