PROPOSAL TO AMEND EU DIRECTIVE 2019/1153: SINGLE ACCESS POINT TO BANK ACCOUNT REGISTRIES

On 16 May, the EU Parliament Research Service published a briefing paper explaining that the proposed amendment would allow designated competent authorities responsible for the prevention, investigation, detection or prosecution of criminal offences to access and search Member States’ centralised bank account registers through a single access point.  This would enable them to establish almost immediately whether an individual holds bank accounts in other Member States and identify to which Member States they should make a formal request for additional information.
