REGULATION OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL

REGULATION OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL

on strengthening the security of identity cards of Union citizens and of residence documents issued to Union citizens and their family members exercising their right of free movement

on identity cards of Union citizens and residence documents issued to Union citizens and their family members exercising their right of free movement

 

 

Amendment    2

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 4 a (new)

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

 

(4 a)  Considerable differences exist between the security levels of national identity cards issued by Member States and residence permits for EU nationals residing in another Member State and their family members, which increases the risk of falsification and document fraud and gives rise to practical difficulties for citizens when they wish to exercise their right to free movement. European Document Fraud Risk Analysis Network Statistics show that incidents of fraudulent European ID Cards have increased over time.

Amendment    3

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 4 b (new)

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

 

(4 b)  In its Communication on “Enhancing security in a world of mobility: improved information exchange in the fight against terrorism and stronger external borders”, the Commission stressed the crucial importance of secure travel and identity documents where necessary to establish beyond doubt a person’s identity and announced that it would be presenting an action plan to tackle travel document fraud. An improved approach is to rely on robust systems to prevent abuses and the threats to internal security arising from failings in document security.

Amendment    4

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 4 c (new)

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

 

(4 c)  Three-quarters of fraudulent documents detected at the external borders and within the Union imitate identity documents issued by Member States and Schengen-associated countries. National identity cards with a lower degree of security are the most frequently detected as fraudulent. According to Frontex, 40682 fraudulent European ID Cards and 13512 fraudulent EU residence permits (all types) were detected and reported within the European Document Fraud Risk Analysis Network (EDF-RAN) between 2013 and 2018. These figures include detections at the external EU borders as well as those arising from secondary intra-EU/Schengen movements.

Amendment    5

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 4 d (new)

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

 

(4 d)  In order to deter identity fraud, Member States should ensure that the falsification and counterfeiting of identification documents and the use of such falsified or counterfeit documents are adequately penalised by their national law.

Amendment    6

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 5 a (new)

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

 

(5 a)  The 2016 Action Plan on document security also noted that the obtaining of authentic documents on the basis of false ‘breeder’ documents (birth, marriage and death certificates) are in marked increase and remain one of the most significant security threats in the European Union, as it is very difficult to detect.

Amendment    7

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 5 b (new)

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

 

(5 b)  This Regulation calls on Member States, with the support of the Commission, to further pursue their work on the best ways of making source documents less vulnerable to fraud, in particular with reference to the Europol manual on the detection of false source documents.

Amendment    8

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 9 a (new)

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

 

(9 a)  The storage of a facial image and two fingerprints (hereinafterreferred to as “biometric data”) on identity documents, as already provided for in respect of biometric passports and residence permits for third country nationals, represents an appropriate combination of reliable identification and authentication with a reduced risk of fraud, for the purpose of strengthening the security of identity documents. Additionally, the European Court of Justice in its judgment ‘Schwarz’ of 2013relating to biometric passports ruled that ‘the combination of two operations designed to identify persons may not a priori be regarded as giving rise in itself to a greater threat to the rights recognised by Articles 7 and 8 of the Charter than if each of those two operations were to be considered in isolation’.

Amendment    9

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 9 b (new)

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

 

(9 b)  This Regulation provides for the collection of biometric identifiers only by qualified and duly authorised staff of the national authorities responsible for issuing identity cards or residence permits.

Amendment    10

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 9 c (new)

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

 

(9 c)  This Regulation should not establish a legal basis for the creation of a database at national level as this remains an exclusive competence of the Member States. Neither should it establish a legal basis for the creation of a centralised database at Union level. The biometric data collected for the purpose of this Regulation should only be used by qualified and duly authorised staff of the competent national authorities and EU agencies for verifying the authenticity of the document and the identity of the holder by means of directly available comparable features when the identity card or residence document is required to be produced by law.

Amendment    11

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 9 d (new)

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

 

(9 d)  Biometric identifiers outside the storage medium, should be stored in a highly secure manner only for the time required to issue the national identity card or residence permit and in no case for longer than one month from the date of collection and should be immediately erased once stored in the storage medium.

Amendment    12

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 10

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

(10)  The specifications of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) Document 9303 (seventh edition, 2015) on machine-readable documents which ensure global interoperability including for machine readability and using visual inspection should be taken into account for the purpose of this Regulation.

(10)  The specifications of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) Document 9303 (seventh edition, 2015) on machine-readable documents which ensure global interoperability including for machine readability and using visual inspection should be taken into account by the Commission when drawing up additional technical specifications.

Amendment    13

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 10 a (new)

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment    14

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 10 b (new)

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

 

(10 b)  In order to ensure uniform conditions for the implementation of the additional technical specifications, implementing powers should be conferred on the Commission. Those powers should be exercised in accordance with Regulation (EU) No 182/2011 of the European Parliament and the Council.1a

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 11

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

(11)  The procedure for taking fingerprints and a facial image should take into account the specific needs of children and be applied in accordance with the safeguards laid down in Article 24 the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union, in the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms and in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.

(11)  The procedure for taking fingerprints and a facial image should pursue a strictly limited objective, take into account the specific needs of children and vulnerable persons, should be undertaken in a child sensitive and in a gender sensitive manner, be implemented by qualified staff, under the regular observation of the Commission as well as of a supervisory authority and be applied in accordance with the safeguards laid down in Article 24 the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union, in the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms and in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. Qualified staff responsible for the collection of biometric identifiers should be trained accordingly.

Amendment    16

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 11 a (new)

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

 

(11 a)  It is important to ensure the dignity of the person from whom biometric information is collected throughout the collection procedure. Therefore, specific considerations relating to gender and to the specific needs of children and of vulnerable persons should be taken into account.

Amendment    17

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 12

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

(12)  Introducing minimum security and format standards of identity cards should allow Member States to rely on the authenticity of those documents when EU citizens exercise their free movement rights. While the possibility to provide for additional national features is maintained, it should be ensured that those features do not diminish the efficiency of the common security features or negatively affect the cross-border interoperability of the identity cards, such as the possibility that the identity cards can be read by machines used by Member States other than those of issue.

(12)  Introducing minimum security and format standards of identity cards should allow Member States to rely on the authenticity of those documents when EU citizens exercise their right of free movement. This Regulation provides that identity cards issued by Member States are mutually recognised as both identity and travel documents. While the possibility to provide for additional national features is maintained, it should be ensured that those features do not diminish the efficiency of the common security features or negatively affect the cross-border interoperability of the identity cards, such as the possibility that the identity cards can be read by machines used by Member States other than those of issue.

Amendment    18

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 12 a (new)

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

 

(12 a)  The use of holograms and/or watermarks allows for preventing the forgery of the document and ensures the verification of the authenticity of an identity card or a residence document, they can therefore, contribute to data minimisation;

Amendment    19

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 12 b (new)

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

 

(12b)  In order to promote recognition between Member States of the security features of national identity cards, Member States should exchange among themselves such digital certificates as are required to authenticate, verify and read the information contained on the secure storage medium. Formats used for the secure storage medium should be interoperable, including in respect of automated border crossing points.

Amendment    20

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 12 c (new)

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

 

(12c)  Mutual recognition of identity documents is an essential element for the mobility of Union citizens. In the event of loss, theft or renewal, provisional documents issued by the Member States are not recognized and therefore no longer facilitate this mobility. Therefore, Member States should, in cooperation with the Commission, work towards better recognition of these documents.

Amendment    21

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 13

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

(13)  The Regulation shall respect the obligations set in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities ratified by all Member States and the Union37 . Therefore, the integration of additional features that render identity cards more accessible and user-friendly to people with disabilities, such as visually impaired persons, should be encouraged.

(13)  When implementing this Regulation, Member States should in particular respect the obligations set in Articles 25 and 26 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union and in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities ratified by all Member States and the Union37 . Therefore, the integration of additional features that render identity cards more accessible and user-friendly to people with disabilities, such as visually impaired persons, should be encouraged.

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 17

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

(17)  Identity cards as well as residence cards of a family member of a Union citizen with insufficient security standards should be phased out taking into account both the security risk and the costs incurred by Member States. In general, a period of five years should be sufficient to strike a balance between the frequency with which documents are usually replaced and the need to fill the existing security gap within the European Union. However, for cards which do not have important features, in particular machine readability, a shorter period of two years is necessary on security grounds.

(17)  Identity cards as well as residence cards of a family member of a Union citizen with insufficient security standards should be phased out taking into account both the security risk and the costs incurred by Member States. In general, a period of eight years for ID card should be sufficient to strike a balance between the frequency with which documents are usually replaced and the need to fill the existing security gap within the European Union. However, for cards which do not have important features, in particular machine readability, a shorter period of five years is necessary on security grounds.
