The Conference of the Independent Data Protection Authorities of the Bund and the Länder has issued a resolution stating that the government draft of the amendment of the law on the Federal Criminal Police Office (Bundeskriminalamtsgesetz) needs to be revised due to infringements of fundamental rights, including privacy. According to the Conference, the stipulated restrictions of privacy, such as extensive data storage or loosened procedural safeguards, are not required either by the decision of the German Constitutional Court on the Bundeskriminalamtsgesetz from April 2016 or by EU Directive 2016/680 on data protection in the area of justice and home affairs.
