ANNEX TO THE LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION

European Parliament Statement on Article 9

The European Parliament regrets that, against the original proposal, the Directive does not include rules on precise deadlines and IT channels for the exchange of information between Financial Intelligence Units of different Member States. The European Parliament also regrets that the scope of application of this Article has been limited to cases of terrorism and organised crime associated with terrorism, and does not cover, as originally proposed, all types of serious criminal offences, which can also have serious detrimental effects on our societies. The European Parliament urges the Commission to re-examine this issue as part of its reports on the implementation and evaluation of this Directive and of the Anti-Money Laundering Directive, and specifically as part of its assessment under Article 21. The European Parliament will closely follow and analyse those reports and assessments and will come up with its own recommendations, if necessary.

Commission Statement

In relation to Article 9 of the Directive, the Commission regrets that, against its original proposal, the Directive does not include rules on precise deadlines and IT channels for the exchange of information between Financial Intelligence Units of different Member States. The Commission also regrets that the scope of application of this Article has been limited to cases of terrorism and organised crime associated with terrorism, and does not cover all types of serious criminal offences, as originally proposed. The Commission will further reflect on Financial Intelligence Unit to Financial Intelligence Unit cooperation, notably as part of its reports on the implementation of this Directive and of the Anti-Money Laundering Directive.
