On 21 April 2016, the EU adopted a Directive on the use of passenger name record (PNR) data for the prevention, detection, investigation and prosecution of terrorist offences and serious crime. The Directive aims to regulate the transfer and processing of international air passengers' PNR data by Member States. The debate will address the concerns with regards to the implementation of this Directive and the general implications of the Directive for data protection and fundamental rights. In addition also the impact of recent developments in the United States on the transfer of PNR data across the Atlantic will be discussed. Finally the debate will also address the consequences for the directive of the recent ECJ judgments in the Tele2 /Watson cases.
