The Expert Group met 12 times. Its membership and activities are recorded on the Commission's Registry of Experts.
Published documents produced by the Experts' Group were adopted by consensus or by majority vote where views expressed may not be shared by every member of the group. The group was composed, under Article 3 of the Commission Decision, of representatives of Member States' law enforcement and data protection authorities, MEPs, the European Data Protection Supervisor and representatives of industry. Meetings of the group were chaired by the European Commission directorates-general responsible for Home Affairs and for Communications Networks, Content and Technology.
The group published a number of papers providing technical guidance on the implementation of the directive, information on transposition of the directive and comments on the evaluation and review of the directive. (Publications should not be construed as legal advice. The European Court of Justice continues to be the final arbiter of the meaning of the directive.)
