Article D522 of the French Code of Criminal Procedure

To facilitate the monitoring of the situation of convicts with regard to conditional release, a file is kept in all prisons which shows the foreseeable date of their release and the date of expiry of the probation period or the security period.

The prison registry notifies convicts in good time that they are eligible for conditional release.

This file is presented to the sentence enforcement judge and to the judicial and administrative authorities inspecting these establishments. It may also be presented, at their request, to Members of Parliament visiting establishments pursuant to Article 719.

Original in French 🇫🇷
Article D522

Pour faciliter le contrôle de la situation des condamnés au regard de la libération conditionnelle, un fichier est tenu dans tous les établissements pénitentiaires qui fait apparaître la date prévisible de leur libération et la date de l’expiration du temps d’épreuve ou de la période de sûreté.

Le greffe de l’établissement pénitentiaire avise en temps utile les condamnés qu’ils sont admissibles à la libération conditionnelle.

Ce fichier est présenté au juge de l’application des peines ainsi qu’aux autorités judiciaires et administratives inspectant ces établissements. Il peut être également présenté, sur leur demande, aux parlementaires visitant des établissements en application de l’article 719.
