LEA access: State of play (LIMITE doc no: 9415-17. pdf):State of play and 4 column document: Sets out a series of differences with the parliament's position including

"The EP opposes the possibility to transfer information to third countries and international organisations for the purpose of returns, unless there is a decision by the Commission regarding the adequate protection of personal data in that third country or a binding readmission agreement. In particular, the EP opposes the possibility to transfer such information on the basis of an arrangement similar to readmission agreements, arguing that these are not binding, do not contain the necessary data protection safeguards, do not follow the institutional procedure for agreements and should therefore not be legitimised. The EP also insists on the explicit agreement and the provision of guarantees by the third country concerned to use the data only for the purposes for which it is transferred, and that such transfers should only be possible once the return decision is final, and subject to the consent of the Member State that entered the data."
