The PIDC Memorandum of Information
PIDC Members at the 2018 Regular Annual Meeting endorsed a regional information sharing agreement to combat transnational crime and enhance national border security. Launched at a formal signing ceremony, the Arrangement provides a legal basis for the sharing of immigration information among PIDC Members.
Developed by the PIDC Information Sharing Working Group, the draft Arrangement was disseminated to the Membership twice for comment and Members were asked to consult with their Attorney Generals on possible legal issues. The Arrangement streamlines and guides a number of existing PIDC information sharing initiatives such as the development of immigration law enforcement intelligence and information products as well as the establishment of National Contact Points and regional information security classification systems.
