EU: MANDATORY DATA RETENTION (2)


Council of the European Union note to COREPER on: Invalidation of Directive 2006/24/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 15 March 2006 on the retention of data generated or processed in connection with the provision of publicly available electronic communications services or of public communications networks and amending Directive 2002/58/EC (the Data Retention Directive) (9009/14, pdf)

Paragraphs 19 and 20 are of interest, but do not reveal a great deal. They note that Passenger Name Retention (PNR) and the Visa Information System (VIS) potentially raise issues, but there is no commitment to reviewing them in light of these principles. This is particularly relevant with regard to PNR, which is still before the Council (as far as the legislative proposal for an EU system is concerned).
