Exchange of Information Extracted from the Criminal Records of Member States

The Council Framework Decision 2009/315/JHA on the organisation and content of the exchange of information extracted from the criminal record between Member States has been published in the Official Journal.

Its main aim is to improve the exchange of information on convictions and, where imposed and entered in the criminal records of the convicting Member State, on disqualifications arising from criminal conviction of citizens of the Union.

A computerised European Criminal Records Information System is established by Council Decision 2009/316/JHA.

This is quite an important development, and it will have substantial implications in the light of Framework Decision 2008/675/JHA on taking account of convictions in the Member States of the European Union in the course of new criminal proceedings.
