European Commission

The European Commission and Eurojust cooperate closely in a number of matters, for example:
 

  • Participation in the Executive Board of Eurojust. A Commission representative participates in the Executive Board of Eurojust, which is responsible for making administrative decisions to ensure the functioning of Eurojust and overseeing the preparatory work of the Administrative Director on other administrative matters for adoption by the College.

  • Participation in the College of Eurojust. A Commission representative also participates in the College of Eurojust when it exercises its management functions.

  • Advising on programming and financial estimates. Eurojust consults the Commission on its annual and multi-annual programming. Further, Eurojust is required, on an annual basis, to provide the Commission with a draft estimate of its revenue and expenditure for the following financial year.

  • Relations with third States and international organisations. Eurojust consults with the Commission to prepare a four-year cooperation strategy specifying the third countries and international organisations with which there is an operational need for cooperation. Thereafter, the Commission should negotiate, on the basis of a mandate from the Council, international agreements with identified third countries and international organisations allowing for the exchange of operational personal data between Eurojust and those third parties.
