Parliamentary questions
17 July 2012
P-006014/2012
Answer given by Ms Malmström on behalf of the Commission

The Commission in its discussions with stakeholders, and in the context of the Data Retention Expert Group (set up under Commission Decision 2008/325/EC), regularly considers the extent to which the directive improves the effectiveness of law enforcement. The Commission is aware that some Member States have adopted measures requiring SIM card registration, and has invited all Member States to provide evidence of the actual or potential benefit of such measures. At present there is no evidence, in terms of benefits for criminal investigation or the smooth functioning of the internal market, of any need for a common EU approach in this area, but the Commission will keep the issue under review.
