Art. 11g Disclosure of personal data by a Schengen State to a third country or an international body

1 Per­son­al data that are trans­mit­ted or made avail­able by a Schen­gen State may be dis­closed to the com­pet­ent au­thor­ity of a third coun­try or to an in­ter­na­tion­al body if:

dis­clos­ure is re­quired to pre­vent, de­tect or pro­sec­ute a crim­in­al of­fence or to ex­ecute a crim­in­al judg­ment;
the Schen­gen State that trans­mit­ted or made avail­able the per­son­al data has giv­en pri­or con­sent to dis­clos­ure; and
the re­quire­ments of Art­icle 11f are met.

2 In derog­a­tion from para­graph 1 let­ter b, per­son­al data may be dis­closed in an in­di­vidu­al case if:

the pri­or con­sent of the Schen­gen State can­not be ob­tained in time; and
dis­clos­ure is ne­ces­sary to pre­vent an im­min­ent and ser­i­ous threat to the pub­lic se­cur­ity of a Schen­gen State or of a third coun­try or to pro­tect the es­sen­tial in­terests of a Schen­gen State.

3 The Schen­gen State shall be no­ti­fied im­me­di­ately of any dis­clos­ure un­der para­graph 2.
