Background

Justice ministers discuss key issues concerning the regulation on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data (general data protection regulation) (5853/12).The regulation updates and strengthens the 1995 Data Protection Directive in order to take into account technological developments and globalisation.

Furthermore, ministers try to reach a general approach regarding the proposal for a directive on the protection of the euro and other currencies against counterfeiting by criminal law (6152/13) which was presented by the Commission in February 2013 and will replace Framework Decision 2000/383/JHA. The directive aims at establishing minimum rules concerning the definition of criminal offences and sanctions in this area of counterfeiting of the euro and other currencies. It also introduces common provisions to strengthen the fight against those offences and to improve their investigation.

Also in the context of the protection of the Union’s financial interests, ministers have a policy debate on two proposals for regulations which will be presented by the Commission:
- on the establishment of the European Public Prosecutor’s Office (EPPO) (12554/13)
- on the reform of the European Union Agency for Criminal Justice Cooperation(Eurojust) (12551/13)

In the margins of the Council, Monday afternoon, EU Justice ministers meet with their Eastern Partnership counterparts (from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine) to discuss cooperation and future prospects in this field.
