On 26 October 2018, the Review Committee on the Intelligence and Security Services (CTIVD) announced it would conduct an investigation into the exchange by the General Intelligence and Security Service (AIVD) and the Military Intelligence and Security Service (MIVD) of unevaluated data with foreign intelligence and security services.
This investigation is part of the oversight activities into the functioning of the ISS Act 2017 announced by the CTIVD in its letter of 26 April 2018 to the House of Representatives.
In its investigation, the CTIVD will check whether the exchange of unevaluated data with foreign intelligence and security services complies with the ISS Act 2017. The investigation focuses on assessing the policy, the procedure (technical process) and the practice of the AIVD and the MIVD regarding the exchange of unevaluated data with foreign intelligence and security services since the ISS Act 2017 came into effect on 1 May 2018.
The scope of the investigation also includes compliance with the undertaking of the Minister of Internal Affairs and Kingdom Relations and the Minister of Defence (25 April 2018) that each authorization granted to provide unevaluated data to a foreign service must be reported to the CTIVD, regardless of the source of the data.
