This chapter analyses the efforts of the European Union (EU) in the field of information exchange. It evaluates the EU's attempts to ‘add value’ to pre-existing bilateral and multilateral exchanges between member states in both pre- and post-11 September eras, with a particular focus on Europol. This chapter also considers the development of the principle of availability which was the guiding light of the 2004 Hague Programme aiming to subject the exchange of law enforcement information to uniform conditions across the Union. It also explores the potentially complicated relationship between the ‘availability’ provisions and those contained with the 2005 Treaty of Prüm.
