Department of Justice and Equality
484. To ask the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice and Equality the reason the State has only implemented 34 measures of Directive 2011/93/EU relating to online child sexual abuse material; if she plans to implement the directive in full or further; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [44391/20]
I can confirm for the Deputy that Ireland has notified the European Commission that Directive 2011/93/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 13 December 2011 on combating the sexual abuse and sexual exploitation of children and child pornography, and replacing Council Framework Decision 2004/68/JHAhas been fully transposed. In response to correspondence received from the Commission, Ireland communicated further information on the transposition of the Directive to the EU Commission, most recently in April 2020.
