EU proposes shorter deadlines for cross-border handover of communications evidence

Wednesday 18 April 2018 | 10:43 CET | News
The European Commission has proposed new rules aimed at making it quicker and easier for law enforcement officials to gain access to communications in another EU state. Under the proposal, communication service providers would be required to respond within 10 days to a request for evidence, or six hours in the event of an emergency. That compares to 120 days under the current European Investigation Order.
