DRAFT EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION

on the draft Council decision on the putting into effect of certain provisions of the Schengen acquis relating to the Visa Information System in the Republic of Bulgaria and Romania

(10161/2017 – C8-0224/2017 – 2017/0808(CNS))

(Consultation)

The European Parliament,

–  having regard to the Council draft (10161/2017),

–  having regard to Article 4(2) of the Act of Accession of the Republic of Bulgaria and Romania, pursuant to which the Council consulted Parliament (C8-0224/2017),

–  having regard to Rule 78c of its Rules of Procedure,

–  having regard to the report of the Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (A8-0286/2017),

1.  Approves the Council draft;

2.  Calls on the Council to notify Parliament if it intends to depart from the text approved by Parliament;

3.  Asks the Council to consult Parliament again if it intends to substantially amend the text approved by Parliament;

4.  Instructs its President to forward its position to the Council and the Commission.


EXPLANATORY STATEMENT

The proposed Council Decision aims to grant Bulgaria and Romania passive access to the Visa Information System (VIS) and, in accordance with the agreement reached by the co-legislators on a draft Regulation establishing an Entry/Exit System (EES), it is a precondition for the application of the EES to those Member States. Therefore, the rapporteur recommends that Parliament endorse the draft Council’s text without amendments so as to encourage the Member States to proceed speedily with the adoption of the Decision.
