Like the EHLASS
system previously employed, the data will have to coded to protect the privacy rights of citizens and will promote, according to a recent Council paper, "concerted approaches of all technologies and methodologies relating to the codes and definitions and collection of data".
The new proposal now includes the EHLASS
(European Home and Leisure Accidents Surveillance System programme), which previously came under the Community's consumer policy (see European Report Nos 2356 and 2357 on the Consumer Council).
The ECU 106.5 million corresponds to the 114 million set out in the Commission's original proposal minus the ECU 7.5 million for the EHLASS
programme for the prevention of accidents in the home and leisure activities, which now falls under the health budget.
