Compensation to crime victims forms


Council Directive 2004/80/EC of 29 April 2004 relating to compensation to crime victims


To help victims of violent intentional crime to access compensation in cross border cases, the directive sets up a system of cooperation between national authorities:

  • Persons who fall victim to crime while being abroad (in the EU Member State in which they do not live) can submit the application to the assisting authority in the State they live.
  • The assisting authority translates and transmits the application to the deciding authority in the Member State where the crime was committed. The deciding authority is responsible for assessing the application and paying the compensation.

The directive provides for two standard forms for the transmission of applications for compensation in cross-border situations.
