Among the measures listed is: "Commission to present proposals on data protection/principle of availability" which is very worrying as a measure covering data protection in the "third pillar" (policing, immigration, judicial cooperation) has been promised since 1997 - now peoples' rights to privacy are to be considered at the same time as the so-called "principle of availability" which would make all information/intelligence held by the myriad of law enforcement agencies across the EU available to all. See: EU policy “putsch”: Data protection handed to the DG for “law, order and security” - it is not "relevant" for citizens to know how and what information about them is exchanged.

The document also lists a number of additional measures (p9) which include a proposal from Germany that more EU member states to sign up to the Prum Convention (Schengen III, see below).
