In the legislative process surrounding the proposal for a Regulation amending Regulation (EU) 2016/794 on Europol, the following is especially expected to change:

  • Rules on Europol’s cooperation with private parties;
  • The processing of personal data by the agency in support of criminal investigations;
  • Its role in research and innovation (→ eucrim 4/2020, 279).

The Council adopted a negotiating mandate on the draft regulation on 30 June 2021. Once the European Parliament (EP) adopts its position on the Commission proposal, negotiations between the EP and Council can begin.
