Fighting crime: faster EU-wide exchange of non-EU nationals’ criminal records

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 17 marzo 2019

The new centralised database will improve the exchange of information in regard to criminal records of non-EU nationals, throughout the EU, contributing to the EU’s fight against cross-border crime and terrorism.The new ECRIS Third Country National (ECRIS-TCN) system will:Enable national authorities to quickly establish whether any EU member state holds criminal records on a non-EU citizen,Include data on dual nationals, who possess the nationality of a third country and of an EU country to ensure that individuals cannot hide past convictions simply by virtue of having two passports. The Parliament and Council negotiators have agreed that Europol, Eurojust and the future European Public Prosecutor’s Office will also have access to ECRIS and the Third Country National system, in addition to judges and prosecutors in EU countries.
The new rules have already been agreed upon by the Parliament and Council negotiators in December, but still require the formal approval of the Council. ECRIS was put in place in 2012 to exchange information on criminal convictions in the EU. However, using the current system to check the criminal records of a non-EU citizen is inefficient. According to the European Commission, in 2014 national authorities used less than five percent of information available in other countries’ criminal records in the conviction cases of third country nationals.
