Follow us: | | Tweet

The Council of the European Union is in trilogue discussions on:
Proposal for a Regulation establishing a centralised system for the identification of Member States holding conviction information on third country nationals and stateless persons (TCN) to supplement and support the European Criminal Records Information System (ECRIS-TCN system) and amending Regulation (EU) No 1077/2011 - Four column table (LIMITE doc no: 11300-18, 6 September 2018, pdf) with the parliament. Covers ECRIS and records on third country nationals. It is a multi-column document showing the Commission proposal, the views of the Council and European Parliament and the agreed "compromises":

"Provisional agreement has also been reached on various texts in yellow, but the EP would like these texts to be 'discussed' at the next trilogue (for internal political reasons). This concerns some 'sensitive' issues, such as Article 6 concerning facial images and related provisions (which encompasses a provisional agreement on the use of implementing and delegated acts), Article 7(1)(3) regarding the use of the ECRIS-TCN system, and Article 11(5) regarding the Programme Management Board."

"Concluding remarks

The Presidency intends reconvening a meeting of the Working Party as soon as it has received feedback on the acceptability of the new proposals by the LIBE Committee. The text of the Regulation and of the accompanying Directive can then probably be finalized rather swiftly.

To be noted, finally, that the next - and most likely final - trilogue will take place in the week of 15 October 2018, possibly on Tuesday 16 October."
