Security scanners (debate)

  Claude Moraes (S&D). – Madam President, clearly from the Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE) and our group, the S&D, there were many serious civil liberty concerns. The Commission proposal has, in fairness, taken into account much of the Parliament’s position, apart from the point which was our insistence that stick images be used. The Commission proposal does allow for body image technology to be used, but the image is to be blurred and obscured and, of course, the images will be remote. I have seen for myself in UK airports such as Manchester how that remote image technology works.

However, when passengers are given the choice to refuse to go through a security scanner, they will be subject to alternative security procedures. These must be proportionate and must also fall within what is deemed to be proportionate measures. The proposal does give us, however, an EU-wide framework; it does set minimum standards. It will also prevent situations such as passengers being told that they cannot fly if they do not go through a security scanner at all, and it will ban the use of X-ray security due to serious health concerns.

But the S&D reiterate the request made in July that common rules on the use of security scanners must be revised on a regular basis and, when necessary, adapted to improve the protection of fundamental rights, health, privacy and personal data in line with technological progress.
