european commissionCivil Liberties MEPs criticised on Tuesday EU countries for their slowness in setting up their national PNR systems. The new directive on the use of Passenger Name Records (PNR) for the fight against terrorism and other serious crime was approved in April 2016, following years of discussion among the co-legislators. Member States have until May 2018 to transpose it to national legislation.
According to the European Commission, at the end of 2016, only four countries had both functional or almost functional PNR systems in place as well as the necessary legislation providing for the collection or processing of the data. Twelve countries were in various stages of development, while the eleven remaining are still at a “relatively early stage”.The Commission has so far provided national authorities with €51.8 million of EU funds to develop PNR related projects and has proposed to provide an additional €70 million to continue assisting on the development of the national systems.
