There are a few substantive issues in the parliament's position which are contrary to the Council's for example the insertion of:
"In line with the principles of necessity and proportionality, the shared BMS shall not store DNA data or palm print data." [emphasis added throughout]
Another is over checking biometric data. The parliament wants:
"Biometric templates shall only
be entered in the shared BMS following an automated
quality check of the biometric data added to one of the information systems performed
by the shared BMS to ascertain the fulfilment of a minimum data quality standard."
While the Council wants:
"Biometric templates (shall only - deleted) may (inserted) be entered only in the shared BMS following an automated quality check of the biometric data added to one of the EU information systems..."

of a centralised Justice & Home Affairs database is "a
point of no return"
