Background to the Directive:
The Directive was passed in the wake of the 7 July 2005 bombings in London. The aim of the Directive was to create uniform standards for the retention of communications data across the EU. The purpose of this was to make it easier for law enforcement agencies to combat terrorism and organised crime, by ensuring that electronic communications data is traceable and retained securely for a minimum period. The Directive covers fixed telephone services, mobile telephone services, Internet access as well as Internet telephone services.
The requirements for retention of data in relation to all providers of Internet access, Internet email and Internet telephony services The Directive requires that data necessary to trace the source of a communication is stored. This means that the individual user ID, telephone number, and name and address of the subscriber using the service at the time of a communication must be stored. In addition the same data must be stored so that the destination of a communication can be traced. Data must also be stored so that the date, time and duration of the communication can be traced, including the date and time of the log-in and log-off of the user.
The data must be stored for a minimum of 6 months, and destroyed after 2 years. The data must be stored securely, which means that service providers must ensure that it cannot be tampered with or altered, and that only specially authorised personnel can access the data. It must be stored, in such a way that it can be supplied without undue delay to law enforcement authorities.
There will be a public authority in the UK allocated the task of ensuring compliance with the requirements of the Directive.
