The EU Parliament civil liberties committee has been discussing a new draft text on an EU system for the use of Passenger Name Record (PNR) data. Among other issues, MEPs assessed the necessity and proportionality of the proposal, its scope, retention periods, the inclusion or exclusion of intra-EU flights, the connection with the on-going data protection reform, as well as the consequences of  the EU Court of Justice judgement annulling the 2006 data retention directive. The deadline for MEPs to table amendments to the text is March 25.
