Comment on Europol’s data subject catergorisation based on the amended Europol Regulation

In this comment, the Meijers Committee focuses on Europol’s increased personal data processing powers which include powers to process personal data that do not have a ‘data subject categorisation’ (DSC). Yet, DSC is essential for keeping personal data processing necessary and proportionate, and guaranteeing fundamental rights. Based on the reasoning by the European Data Protection Supervisor and Court of Justice EU, the Meijers Committee strongly recommends to seriously improve this aspect of Europol’s data processing, and also calls to Member States to assist Europol in this.
