Use of the Schengen Information System (SIS)

17-10-2018

Responding to the need to better address migration and security challenges, including the fight against terrorism and serious crimes, the Commission presented in December 2016 a set of three proposals to develop the Schengen Information System (SIS) for additional uses, addressing potential gaps and introducing several essential changes to the current system on the types of alert entered. The European Parliament is due to vote during its October II plenary session on the texts agreed in trilogue negotiations.
