Question reference: E-006810/2015

The Council acknowledges that there is a link between the adoption of the directive on the fight against fraud to the Union's financial interests by means of criminal law (PIF Directive) and the establishment of the European Public Prosecutor's Office (EPPO). The directive should ideally be adopted well before the EPPO is established, so the directive can be implemented in all Member States before the EPPO starts its operational work. The Council is striving to conclude the negotiations on the draft EPPO Regulation as soon as possible, but considering the complex nature of the file and the state of negotiations in Council it is still too early to forecast when the Office will be established.

In accordance with the Protocol 22 Denmark does not participate in the establishment of the European Public Prosecutor's Office, and the UK and Ireland have not exercised their right under Protocol 21 to opt in to the proposal at this time. As such, in relation to decisions on the European Public Prosecutor's Office, the unanimity of the members of the Council does not include Denmark, the UK and Ireland.
