Whereas the abovementioned elements include personal data which are subject to specific protective measures; whereas, in particular, these data may be introduced into the database only when the conditions set out in Article 27(2) of the Basic Regulation are met;

whereas the measures laid down in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee provided for in Article 43 of the Basic Regulation,
