(3) The production of Community statistics is governed by the rules set out in Council Regulation (EC) No 322/97 of 17 February 1997 on Community Statistics(2) and actions on the establishment of Community statistics are carried out according to the Community Statistical Programme and its Annual Programmes(3) and respecting the principles set out in the European Code of Practice adopted by the Statistical Programme Committee on 24 February 2005 and attached to the Commission Communication to the European Parliament and to the Council and Recommendation of the Commission of 25 May 2005(4) on the independence, integrity and accountability of the national and Community statistical authorities.

(4) The expert group shall be composed of individuals competent to consider the policy needs and advise on the effective use of indicators and data in the area of crime and criminal justice.

(5) Rules on disclosure of information by members of the expert group should be provided for, without prejudice to the Commission’s rules on security as set out in the Annex to Commission Decision 2001/844/EC, ECSC, Euratom(5).
