On 7 October 2019, Eurojust and the Kingdom of Denmark signed an agreement to continue their criminal justice cooperation. In light of the new Eurojust Regulation entering into force in December 2019, the agreement was needed to be able to continue judicial cooperation with Denmark, which is a Member State of the European Union but not a Member of Eurojust. Under the agreement, Denmark has the status of an observer at Eurojust College meetings and the possibility to set up a full Desk. It is subject to democratic oversight by its National Parliament and bound by the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice and the European Data Protection Supervisor. Furthermore, Denmark will financially contribute to Eurojust’s budget. In operational terms, Denmark will maintain its access to Eurojust’s information systems and be able to second a representative to Eurojust.
