Spain regularly reports hate crime data to ODIHR. Spain's Criminal Code contains general penalty-enhancement and substantive offence provisions. The Interior Ministry's State Secretariat of Security collects hate crime data from the Catalan Autonomous Police, the Autonomous Basque Police, Navarre Police, National Police Force and the Civil Guard. Spain publishes annual reports on hate crimes.
A new category – ageist hate crime – has been introduced into the national monitoring system.
The Council of Europe's Ad Hoc Committee Of Experts On Roma And Traveller Issues (CAHROM) published relevant recommendations in its "Thematic Report on Roma and Travellers' Access to Justice (with a gender focus)."
ODIHR observes that Spain has not reported to ODIHR the numbers of prosecuted hate crime cases or information on the sentencing of hate crime cases.
