Identity checks for international train passengers to become mandatory

Published on : Saturday, January 28, 2017

Identity checks for international train passengersThe four countries- Belgium, the Netherlands, France and Britain- have entered into an agreement regarding identity checks for passengers travelling aboard international trains, local media reported on Friday.

 

According to local newspaper Le Soir, a working group will be set up to address the practical issues involved in implementing the Passenger Name Record (PNR) system. A first draft proposal is expected to be drawn up by the end of March.

 

The PNR system obliges airlines to hand European Union (EU) countries their passengers’ data in order to help the authorities fight terrorism and serious crime. It would require more systematic collection, use, and retention of PNR data on air passengers.

 

The PNR is now to be extended to all international transportation.

 

The use of PNR data for the prevention, detection, investigation, and prosecution of terrorist offences and serious crimes comes from an EU directive approved on April 21, 2016 by the Council of the EU.

 

According to this directive, every member state will have a PNR set up before the end of 2018.
