Europol Joint Supervisory Body: victims of trafficking in human beings, a data protection perspective

On 12 October 2015, the Europol Joint Supervisory Body (JSB) issued a Report on the data protection perspective of the processing of data on victims of trafficking in human beings. A very important aspect of the fight against trafficking in human beings is the processing of data by the law enforcement authorities involved and their responsibilities for this processing. Based on the practical experiences the JSB has with the processing of personal data at Europol and on national level, the report introduces specific conditions necessary to ensure accountable responsibilities for the data controllers. On of these conditions is the use of a uniform list of indicators in the whole chain of law enforcement activities. The specific conditions developed by the JSB should be widely promoted and implemented and their uniform use needs to be constantly supervised. The report therefore addresses especially the national and EU and other international data protection supervisors stimulating them to use this report as harmonising instrument for advising police and judicial authorities and to assess the implementation of the recommendations made in this report. The full text of the report is available at:   6 aprile 2016
