Answer given by Mr Avramopoulos on behalf of the European Commission
Question reference: P-005054/2018

The Commission is aware that organised crime is constantly finding new avenues to operate and to escape detection and investigations. The report on the implementation of the framework Decision 2008/841/JHA of July 2016(1) concluded that the Commission will provide support to Member States to ensure an adequate level of implementation of the framework Decision.

One of the conclusions of the 9th Progress Report towards an effective and genuine Security Union adopted in July 2017(2), accompanied by the Comprehensive Assessment of EU Security Policy(3), is that it is important that Member States fully implement the framework Decision and exploit its full potential, and that the EU should focus on assisting Member States in the way they apply the framework Decision in practice.

It is with this objective in mind that the Commission has engaged in discussions with Member States on the framework Decision, including regarding the definition of criminal organisation.

The Commission is planning to continue these discussions with the Member States.
