Aujourd'hui, le Parlement européen et le Conseil sont parvenus à un accord politique sur la proposition de la Commission visant à combler les lacunes en matière de sécurité en faisant en sorte que les systèmes d'information de l'UE sur la sécurité, les migrations et la gestion des frontières travaillent ensemble de manière plus intelligente et ciblée. Priorité politique pour 2018-2019, ce cadre interopérable garantira que les gardes-frontières et les policiers ont accès aux bonnes informations quand et où ils en ont besoin pour exercer leurs fonctions.
The new tools will allow the existing as well as future EU information systems, such as the Entry/Exit System (EES), the European Travel Information and Authorisation System (ETIAS) and European Criminal Records Information System (ECRIS-TCN) to talk to each other, preventing important pieces of information from going undetected. The new tools will:
The two Regulations establishing the framework for the interoperability of EU information systems for security, border and migration management will now need to be formally adopted by the European Parliament and the Council.
Once adopted, eu-LISA, the EU Agency responsible for the operational management of large-scale information systems in the area of freedom, security and justice, will be responsible for the development and the roll-out of the technical components that will make EU information systems interoperable.
Currently, EU information systems do not talk to each other enough – information is stored separately in unconnected systems, making them fragmented, complex and difficult to operate. This risks information slipping through the net. Overcoming the current shortcomings in data management and improving the interoperability of existing information systems has been a priority for the Juncker Commission.
Alongside President Juncker's 2016 State of the Union Address, the Commission presented a Communication on stronger and smarter information systems for borders and security, starting a discussion on how to make EU information systems work better in order to enhance border management and internal security.
Since then, the Commission has regularly reported on the progress made in closing the remaining information gaps in EU information systems, so that they work together more intelligently and effectively. In May 2017, the Commission proposed a new approach to achieve full interoperability of EU information systems for security, border and migration management by 2020 and followed up with legislative proposals in December 2017.
