CM1711 Note on Proposal for a Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council establishing a centralized system for the identification of Member States holding conviction information on third-country nationals and stateless persons (TCN)

The Meijers Committee would like, once again and more elaborated, to express its concerns with regard to the Commission proposal of 29 June 2017 on the introduction of a centralized system, ECRIS-TCN (COM (2017/344). The Meijers Committee is concerned that the proposal, with an immense potential impact for individuals and the protection of their rights, will be adopted without first examining the added value, necessity and proportionality of such centralized system.
