On 8 April 2016, the Council adopted its position at first reading on data protection reform, which paves the way for the final adoption of the legislative package by the European Parliament at its plenary session in April.
This formal adoption comes after the compromise agreed with the European Parliament in December 2015.
Following this adoption, the Dutch minister for Justice, Ard Van der Steur said: “I have the commitment from the European Parliament that this will allow a vote on both the data protection package and the PNR Directive in April. The Brussels attacks of 22 March have once again underlined the urgency of the adoption of the PNR Directive.”
