Answer given by Mr King on behalf of the Commission

1. Information on the national transposition measures communicated by Member States concerning the Passenger Name Record (PNR) Directive[1] can be found on EUR-Lex[2].

The Commission is closely following the progress in the setup of PNR systems, notably through regular information exchanges with the Member States. As a follow-up to the Implementation Plan[3], the Commission set out an overview of the collective stage of implementation of the PNR Directive in the Twelfth progress report towards an effective and genuine Security Union.[4]

2. Under the financial programme Prevention of and Fight against Crime (ISEC) 2007-2013 and the Internal Security Fund Police (ISF Police) 2014-2020, 17 projects were awarded an action grant by the Commission (Tables 1-2 in annex).

By 31 March 2017 (accounts 2016), actions pertaining to PNR had been supported in the national programmes of Spain and Belgium under ISF Police (Table 3 in annex).

To ensure the implementation of the PNR Directive, the 2017 EU budget was reinforced with EUR 70 million for ISF Police[5] which have been distributed to Member States according to the fund allocation key[6] (Table 4 in annex).

3. Member States are required to implement the PNR Directive by 25 May 2018. The Commission will make use of all the measures at its disposal for monitoring the implementation of EU legislation by Member States. These include the possibility to conduct a compliance assessment of both transposition and conformity of the PNR Directive[7].
