The Council adopted on 06 June two mandates authorizing the Commission to negotiate on behalf of EU an agreement with the US facilitating access to e-evidence for judicial cooperation in criminal matters and to participate in the negotiations in the Council of Europe on a second additional protocol to the Cyber-crime Convention, respectively.
Effective cooperation at international level is necessary because the majority of criminal investigations, more specifically 85%, require access to online evidence, and in two-thirds of these investigations there is a need for evidence from online service providers outside the EU.
