The revision of the Victims’ Rights Directive addresses problems identified in the Evaluation of the Directive adopted in June 2022. The amendments relate to five main victims’ rights: access to information, improved support and protection, improved participation in criminal proceedings and facilitated access to compensation.

The European Parliament and the Council must adopt the Commission’s proposal. Once adopted, the Member States would have two years to implement the Directive into their national law.
