Europol Joint Supervisory Body


Probably the most valuable feature of the supervisory authority is the ability to give qualified advice on the issues in practice, and to provide necessary guidelines to ensure proper application of legal provisions and better compliance.

One of the elements of the JSB's role as advisor is the effective and constructive contribution to new initiatives concerning information processed by Europol or to the requests from Europol regarding its operational activities. The scope of the issues on which the JSB has issued its opinion is rather broad and includes for example: the draft agreements with third States; EU bodies; data protection level in third States; the various legislative initiatives concerning the data processing at Europol; and specific forms of data processing with regard to compliance with the legal framework applicable to Europol.
