Recommendation on the use of standard forms for the exchange of police intelligence concerning high risk sports events (T-RV/97/1)

The Standing Committee of the European Convention on spectator violence and misbehaviour at sports events and in particular at football matches;

In accordance with Article 9.1.c of the Convention;

Having regard to Articles 1, 3.1.b and 4 of the Convention;

Recalling its 1988 Recommendation on police co-operation (use of advisory police "spotters", preparations for major events);

Recalling its 1991 Recommendation concerning Article 4 of the Convention: international co-operation;

Recalling its Recommendations on measures to be taken by the organisers of football matches and public authorities (Recommendation N 1/93) and measures to be taken by organisers and public authorities concerning high-risk indoor sports events (Recommendation N 1/94);

Recalling the Convention for the protection of individuals with regard to automatic processing of personal data (ETS 108);

Recalling Recommendation N R(87) 15 of the Committee of Ministers to member States regulating the use of personal data in the police sector;

Aware of the need to strengthen measures for combating hooliganism and to improve international co-operation between police forces in connection with major international sports events, in particular international football matches and championship fixtures;

Considering that police co-operation and the exchange of information between police forces in the different localities concerned are key elements of prevention measures aimed at combating spectator violence and misbehaviour;

Noting that the Council of the European Union adopted a Recommendation on 22 April 1996 on guidelines for preventing and restraining disorder connected with football matches;

Anxious to avoid the adoption of two different texts in this sphere;

Recommends that the Parties to the Convention:

1. use the same standard forms, set out in Appendix 1 to the present Recommendation;

2. process the personal data collected on the basis of these forms only for the purposes for which these forms were designed; and

3. destroy the data when they are no longer needed for the purposes for which they were collected, and in any case within 5 years.
