Over the past decades, many EU and non EU countries have amended their legislative and institutional framework on proceeds from crime confiscation to deprive criminals of their assets more effectively and to better manage and dispose of them.

One of these issues is the contribution that databases could give to asset management and disposal.

Which Member States do have a database on seized and confiscated assets? What are their strengths and weaknesses? What are the ways forward in this area?
