State of Play of EU-US Agreement on Passenger Name Record

A Passenger Name Record (PNR) is a record in a database of a computer reservation system which contains information for a passenger or a group of passengers travelling together. But the amount of information is causing concern for some privacy organisations. EPP Group's Chairman Joseph Daul held a meeting with Jane Holl Lute, Deputy Secretary of the US Department of Homeland Security, and US Ambassador to the EU, William Kennard focused on PNR. The meeting addressed the current status of the negotiation in order for the European Parliament to adopt the new agreement, which was initiated by European Union and the United States. Available material includes an edited package.
