The UK has been operating the European arrest warrant (EAW) since 2004. In 2006 the UK's implementation of the EAW was the subject of a peer evaluation by other EU member states and the Commission published reports in 2007 and 2010, to which the Government responded.

Additionally, there is an annual requirement on member states to provide the Council with numerical data on the operation of the EAW as both issuing and executing state.
