          • What is the EU Law Enforcement Directive? How Law Enforcement Authorities (Should) Protect Personal Data

          • The aim of this backgrounder is to present the new EU legislation on the protection of personal data in law enforcement in a concise and clear manner.

        • BCSP researcher Jelena Pejic analyzed the legislative act which is known as the EU Law Enforcement Directive (LED) (known also as the EU Police Directive), a twin sister to the far more widely known General Data Protection Regulation - GDPR).

          Both GDPR and LED are part of a new EU legislative package that has significantly improved personal data protection standards. They were adopted in the spring of 2016 and have been in force since May 2018. While the General Regulation has garnered most of the attention from the expert community, governmental and non-governmental sector, the business world and the broader public concerned with individual privacy, the Law Enforcement Directive is rather specific - for both the circumstances in which it applies and from the approaches it adopts.

           

          This backgrounder covers the following topics:

          • Why do we need the Law Enforcement Directive when we have the GDPR?
          • What are the main differences between the Law Enforcement Directive and the GDPR?
          • Why should we learn about the EU Law Enforcement Directive in Serbia?
          • Scope of the Law Enforcement Directive
          • Who applies the Law Enforcement Directive?
          • To which principles do competent authorities adhere when processing personal data?
          • What types of data are processed?
          • How is personal data protected?
          • How long is personal data stored?
          • Rights of the data subject
          • International data transfers
          • Oversight of the Law Enforcement Directive’s Application
