The agency regularly communicates the results of its work to Council working parties and committees, in particular to the Working Party on Fundamental Rights, Citizens Rights and Free Movement of Persons (FREMP).
Every five years, the Council of the European Union adopts the FRA Multiannual Framework (MAF), which lays down the thematic areas of the agency’s activities over the period. The results of FRA’s data collection and research feed into the discussions of relevant Council preparatory bodies - working parties and committees, including the Asylum Working Party, the Social Questions Working Party, the General Affairs and Evaluation Working Party.
Each year, FRA presents its annual report on fundamental rights to the Working Party on Fundamental Rights, Citizens Rights and Free Movement of Persons (FREMP).
When requested by the Council, FRA issues opinions on issues related to fundamental rights aspects of legislative or non-legislative files. For example, in 2008 the FRA submitted an Opinion on the proposal for a Council Framework decision on the use of Passenger Name Record (PNR), at the behest of the Council.
Apart from cooperation and contacts at expert level, FRA’s Director often participates in both informal and formal ministerial meetings of the Justice and Home Affairs Council (JHA) and the Employment, Social Policy, Health and Consumer Affairs Council (EPSCO).
