The UK has set out its response to 12 recommendations on preventing and combatting cybercrime made in a September 2015 report by the Council of the EU, covering issues ranging from investigation and prosecution, to legislation and mutual legal assistance.

See: Evaluation report on the seventh round of mutual evaluations "The practical implementation and operation of European policies on prevention and combatting Cybercrime" - Follow-up to the Report on UK (6001/18, 7 February 2018, LIMITE, pdf)

"As a follow-up to each Round of Mutual evaluations, each Member-State is requested to inform the General Secretariat of the Council of the actions it has taken on the recommendations given to it.

This follow-up should be submitted within the 18 months of the adoption of the report concerned. Delegations will find in the Annex the follow-up of the United Kingdom regarding the recommendations that were made in the report 10952/2/15 REV 2 for the Seventh Round of Mutual Evaluations."

The original report was issued on 30 September 2015, making the UK's response almost two years later than the supposed 18-month deadline. It was declassified by the Council in November 2015: Evaluation report on the seventh round of mutual evaluations "The practical implementation and operation of European policies on prevention and combatting Cybercrime" - Report on the United Kingdom (25 November 2015, 10952/2/15 REV 2, pdf)

Other mutual evaluation reports on national cybercrime measures have also been published by the Council: Reports on implementation of EU cybercrime policies in Cyprus and Italy declassified (Statewatch News Online, August 2016)
