The EU/US Passenger Name Record (PNR) Agreement: report with evidence, 21st report of session 2006-07

Front Cover
For every flight into, out of or over their territory the United States requires detailed information on all passengers and crew. Much of the information is collected by the airlines - the Passenger Name Record (PNR). Many passengers are unaware that detailed personal information is being transferred to the US authorities. The first agreement between the US and EU, which tried to reconcile the public security demand for information with the EU laws on data protection was annulled by the European Court of Justice. An interim agreement was put in place in 2006, but a third agreement is now under negotiation. In this report the Committee examine the failings of the earlier agreements and suggest how they could be remedied so that the undertakings governing the collection, use, retention and transfer of data are clear and not susceptible to unilateral amendment.
