Délégation luxembourgeoise du groupe de contrôle parlementaire conjoint d'Europol (Europol "JPSG" - joint parliamentary scrutiny group)

Composition and information

Article 88 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union provides for parliamentary scrutiny of Europol’s activities. The national parliaments are involved in this monitoring.

Regulation (EU)2016/794 on the European Union Agency for Law Enforcement Cooperation introduces this parliamentary scrutiny by creating the Europol parliamentary scrutiny group.

The JPSG provides political monitoring of Europol’s activities when performing its tasks, including their effect on the freedoms and fundamental rights of natural persons. To this end, it may invite the president of the Board of Director[DO1] s, the Executive Direct[DO2] or and the European Data Protection Supervisor.

Members meet twice a year, in the first half of the year in the Member State holding the rotating presidency and at the European Parliament in the second half of the year.
