E-009979-12
Question for written answer E-009979-12
to the Commission
Rule 117
Amelia Andersdotter (Verts/ALE)

 Subject:  Lack of underlying research to establish best practice in child protection
 Answer in writing 

Further to the Commission’s answer to Question E-007751/2012, a follow-up question requires a response:

If there are no consolidated statistics at EU level, what was the factual basis for the Council Framework Decision 2004/68/JHA of 22 December 2003 on combating the sexual exploitation of children and child pornography, OJ L 13, 20.1.2004, p. 44, and Directive 2011/93/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 13 December 2011 on combating the sexual abuse and sexual exploitation of children and child pornography, and replacing Council Framework Decision 2004/68/JHA, OJ L 335, 17.12.2011, p. 1?

I have taken note of the impact assessment for the proposal, which contains no further clarification of this issue. In addition, the Commission’s reply to Written Question E-008898/2011 appears not to cast any light on this matter. I am referring specifically to the fact that regulations are supposed to give answers to issues found after an analysis and after the corresponding policies have been developed.

According to your answer, the abovementioned regulations were issued without any factual basis, as the specific data will only be available in 2015, as a result of your current actions.
