Non-participating EU Member States
Out of all EU Member States, so far, Hungary, Poland and Sweden have decided not to join the EPPO. Denmark and Ireland have an opt-out from the area of freedom, security and justice (AFSJ).
Judicial cooperation in criminal matters with these countries is based on EU instruments for which the EPPO is notified as the competent authority pursuant to Article 105(3) of the EPPO Regulation.
To facilitate judicial cooperation and strategic exchange of information, a working arrangement with the Office of the Prosecutor General of Hungary entered into force on 6 April 2021 and a working arrangement with the Danish Ministry of Justice entered into force on 31 August 2023.
