Europol Joint Supervisory Body

ABOUT THE JSB

Welcome to the website of the Europol Joint Supervisory Body (JSB), Europol's independent data protection supervisor.

Europol is an EU-wide law enforcement organisation helping Member States to prevent and combat serious international crime and terrorism. Europol facilitates the exchange of information between Member States and provides crime analysis expertise and technical support. Europol handles a vast amount of sensitive information about citizens and must ensure the rights of individuals when using this information.-

As a safeguard, the Europol Council Decision, which set up both Europol and the JSB, contains a number of provisions relating to personal data protection. The main task of the JSB is to ensure Europol complies with these data protection povisions.
