1999 Siemens Monitor Center
"Active Monitoring refers to the fact that the target (phone) numbers to be monitored are marked from within the network. The Monitoring functionality is a built in function of the “Switch”. For monitoring purposes, only targeted phone calls are routed to the MC. This can be compared with a three party conference call, in which the MC is a silent member of the conference call. Active Monitoring plays an active role in the communication network, in the sense that the Monitor Center is viewed as a subscriber to the network with a certain service level. Lawful Interception is an example for Active Monitoring." [Page 6]

This is an ETSI document and will not only apply to countries falling under the Directive (not only EU countries). Limitations in what data to be retained are a national issue. This document and the delivery document are not mandatory. Where necessary this document will clarify functionality of the Directive. The Directive text sometimes seems to combine issues from a telecom perspective. The Directive text might use ambiguous wording from a telecom perspective. Additional issues could be added to fulfil national requirements.

"The request structure defined in section 7.5.1 permits a broad range of requests. Some of the requests that are possible under this structure will not necessarily be legal in all jurisdictions or proportionate in all situations. The goal of the present document is to define a structure that (at a technical level) allows a wide range of requests to be transmitted. Just because a request can be constructed within the framework in 7.5.1, it does not mean it is automatically a legal request. It is a national issue to establish whether or not a request is legal and proportionate." [p.17]

The European Parliament emphasised that the draft Directive on data retention should contain: 1. provisions on access, whilst recognising the constraints to such a provision resulting from the limits of the legal basis for a Directive, and 2. a provision imposing criminal sanctions. They also reiterated the need for additional data protection safeguards. There are still divergent views on several key issues between the institutions, notably retention periods, costs and scope of application. A new article will place access to retained data outside of the european data protection directive, based on the exception for national security and public security.

This Draft Report and the presented compromise by Alexander Nuno Alvaro gave the undertaking of the British EU Presidency green light to pass in the trialogue discussions with the European Parliament and the EU Commission. The operating expense for ISP's and CSP's got reduced and the differences of existing data retention laws in some countries, eg. GB, SE, SP, cannot be longer reason for a court case at The European Tribunal. "This Directive aims to harmonise the provisions of the Member States concerning obligations on the providers of publicly available electronic communications services or of a publicly accessible electronic communications network with respect to the processing and retention of certain data, and to ensure that the rights to the respect for private life and to the protection of personal data in the access and use of these data are fully respected, in order to ensure that the data is available for the purpose of the investigation, detection and prosecution of serious criminal offences, as referred to in Article 2 (2) of Council Framework Decision 2002/584/JHA."

The Presidency provided information on the state of play...It recalled the negative press that this issue has received in the media...Against this background, the Presidency thus recognised that progress in this matter is being very slow. ...Several delegations expressed some caution as regards the preparation of a press release, noting that this could provoke a chain reaction and further negative press in the media. The Commission, whilst noting that its position has not changed, informed delegations that a possible way to break the deadlock could be following a similar strategy as that followed in tackling the issue of Child Pornography in the Internet. Although acknowledging that this was a different topic it also has an interception dimension."
