UK PARTICIPATION IN ECRIS CRIMINAL RECORDS DATABASE FOR THIRD-COUNTRY NATIONALS

On 10th August, the Home Office published an Impact Assessment on the UK involvement in the proposed EU Directive and EU Regulation about the exchange of information on third-country nationals and the European Criminal Records Information System (ECRIS).  ECRIS seeks to ensure greater access to previous convictions of third country nationals as Member States will be able to check identity information against a centralised system enabling targeted ECRIS requests to be sent to relevant Member States.  This will ensure that EU wide criminality committed by non-EU nationals is captured and accessible to Member States.
