On 14 June 2007 the Justice and Home Affairs Council reached an agreement on a Council Decision on the stepping-up of cross-border cooperation in combating terrorism and cross-border crime. This Decision contains provisions based on the essential parts of the Prüm Treaty and aims at improving the exchange of information between the authorities responsible for the prevention and investigation of criminal offences. From now on, important provisions of the Prüm Treaty, a police cooperation agreement (originally signed by Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Spain on 27 May 2005) will be implemented in all Member States. After implementation, national law enforcement agencies will have mutual access to each other’s DNA, fingerprint and vehicle registration information systems.
