Commission proposes a new information-sharing tool at EU level to better protect critical infrastructure

The European Commission today proposed legislation on establishing a Critical Infrastructure Warning Information Network (CIWIN) to strengthen information-sharing on critical infrastructure protection between EU Member States.

Vice-President of the Commission Jacques Barrot stated: «This proposal represents one of the cornerstones of the European Programme for Critical Infrastructure Protection and an important step forward in creating a functioning Critical Infrastructure Protection Community in the European Union.» He added that «European citizens should all feel safer about their infrastructure once this system is in place».
