The OCTA is a core element of the European Criminal Intelligence Model (ECIM), which is based upon the intelligence-led law enforcement concept. This means that the OCTA focus is primarily placed on the OC groups. Criminal activities are mainly analysed through the criminal hubs concept. In this way, the focus remains on complex situations that have widespread effects reaching beyond national borders and shaping criminal markets in large parts of the EU. Such complex situations are based on considerations which appreciate criminal activities in terms of geographical flows and facilitating factors, and OCGs in terms of intentions and capabilities (assessed through the typology).
