"The Meijers Committee emphasizes that the adoption of a new legislative framework protecting the rights of individuals with regard to the processing of their personal data should be complemented with a comprehensive data protection policy within the EU. This means that new measures extending the collection, processing, and use of personal data, such as the Smart Borders Project and the extended use of personal data for the purpose of law enforcement, should be critically reviewed, assessing both the necessity and added value of these measures, as the possible risks and impact for fundamental rights of citizens."
