Retour iPROCEEDS: Multi-language templates for Data Preservation Request and Access to Stored Data

Bucharest, Romania , 

The T-CY Assessment report on mutual legal assistance provisions of the Budapest Convention on Cybercrime puts forward a number of recommendations to the members of the Budapest Convention. The use of the multi-language templates for processing of requests and generally making the process of international cooperation more efficient and informed, is one of them.

The standard templates for requests under Articles 29 (data preservation) and Article 31 (access to stored data) under the Convention, aim to increase efficiency of the 24/7 points of contact and mutual legal assistance authorities in their corresponding proceedings under these provisions.

Under the iPROCEEDS project the templates approved by the T-CY at its 19th plenary session, on 9 July 2019, were translated into the following languages: Art. 29 and 30: Albanian, Bosnian, Macedonian, Montenegrin, Serbian and Turkish. Art. 31: Albanian, Bosnian, Macedonian, Montenegrin, Serbian and Turkish.
