REGULATION (EU) 2021/...
OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL

of ...

▌amending Regulations (EU) 2019/816 and (EU) 2019/818 as regards the establishment of the conditions for accessing other EU information systems for the purposes of the European Travel Information and Authorisation System

THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, and in particular point (d) of Article 82(1) ▌thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the European Commission,

After transmission of the draft legislative act to the national parliaments,

Acting in accordance with the ordinary legislative procedure[1],


Whereas:

(1) Regulation (EU) 2018/1240 of the European Parliament and of the Council[2] established the European Travel Information and Authorisation System (‘ETIAS’) for third-country nationals exempt from the requirement to be in possession of a visa when crossing the external borders. It laid down the conditions and procedures to issue or refuse a travel authorisation under that system.

(2) ETIAS enables consideration of whether the presence of those third-country nationals in the territory of the Member States would pose a security, illegal immigration or high epidemic risk.


(3) In order to enable the processing of the application files by the ETIAS Central System referred to in ▌Regulation (EU) 2018/1240, it is necessary to establish the interoperability between the ETIAS Information System, other EU information systems and Europol data referred to in ▌that Regulation. ▌

(4) This Regulation lays down how this interoperability and the conditions for the consultation of data stored in other EU information systems and Europol data by the ETIAS automated process for the purposes of identifying hits are to be implemented. As a result, it is necessary to amend Regulations (EU) 2019/816[3] and (EU) 2019/818[4] of the European Parliament and of the Council ▌in order to connect the ETIAS Central System to the other EU information systems and to Europol data and to specify the data that will be sent to and from those EU information systems and Europol data.


(5) In accordance with ▌Regulation (EU) 2018/1240, when the recast of Regulation (EU) No 603/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council[5] will be adopted, the necessary consequential amendments will be adopted.

(6) The European Search Portal (ESP), established by Regulation (EU) 2019/818, will enable the data stored in ETIAS to be compared to the data stored in the other EU information systems concerned by means of a query.

(7) Technical modalities should be defined to enable ETIAS to regularly and automatically verify in other systems whether the conditions for the retention of application files, as laid down in Regulation (EU) 2018/1240, are still fulfilled.


(8) In accordance with Regulation (EU) 2019/816 and in line with the intention expressed in Regulation (EU) 2018/1240, ETIAS should be able to verify if correspondences exist between data in the ETIAS application files and the European Criminal Records Information System – Third Country Nationals (‘ECRIS-TCN’) data in the Common Identity Repository (‘CIR’) as regards which Member States hold conviction information on third-country nationals and stateless persons for a terrorist offence over the previous 25 years or any other serious criminal offence over the previous 15 years, as listed in the Annex to Regulation (EU) 2018/1240 where those criminal offences are punishable under national law by a custodial sentence or a detention order for a maximum period of at least three years.


(9) Member States already collect and process data of third country nationals and stateless persons for the purposes of the ECRIS-TCN Regulation. This Regulation does not impose any obligation on Member States to modify or extend the data of third country nationals and stateless persons already being collected under the ECRIS-TCN Regulation. For the purpose of the querying by ETIAS, only the flag and the code of the convicting Member State should be added.

(10) The conditions, including access rights, under which the ETIAS Central Unit and ETIAS National Units may consult data stored in other EU information systems for the purposes of ETIAS should be safeguarded by clear and precise rules regarding the access by the ETIAS Central Unit and ETIAS National Units to the data stored in other EU information systems, the type of queries and categories of data, all of which should be limited to what is strictly necessary for the performance of their duties. In the same vein, the data stored in the ETIAS application file should only be visible to those Member States that are operating the underlying information systems in accordance with the modalities of their participation.


(11)  In order to support the ETIAS objective of assessing whether the applicant for a travel authorisation would pose a threat to public policy or public security, ETIAS should be able to verify if correspondences exist between data in the ETIAS application files and the ECRIS-TCN data in the CIR as regards which Member States hold conviction information on third-country nationals and stateless persons for a terrorist offence or any other criminal offence listed in the annex to Regulation (EU) 2018/1240 if they are punishable under national law by a custodial sentence or a detention order for a maximum period of at least three years.

(12) A hit indicated by the ECRIS-TCN system should not of itself be taken to mean that the third-country national concerned has been convicted in the Member States that are indicated. The existence of previous convictions should only be confirmed based on information received from the criminal records of the Member States concerned.


(13) According to ▌Regulation (EU) 2018/1240, the European agency for the operational management of large-scale information systems in the area of freedom, security and justice ('eu-LISA'), established by Regulation (EU) 2018/1726 of the European Parliament and of the Council[6], should be responsible for the design and development phase of the ETIAS Information System.

(14) This Regulation is without prejudice to Directive 2004/38/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council[7].

(15) In accordance with Articles 1 and 2 of Protocol No 22 on the position of Denmark, annexed to the Treaty on European Union (TEU) and to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU), Denmark is not taking part in the adoption of this Regulation and is not bound by it or subject to its application.


(16) ▌Ireland may notify the President of the Council its wish to take part in the adoption and application of this Regulation, in accordance with Article 3 of Protocol No 21 on the position of the United Kingdom and Ireland in respect of the area of freedom, security and justice, annexed to the TEU and to the TFEU.

(17) In accordance with Articles 1 and 2 and Article 4a(1) of Protocol No 21 on the position of the United Kingdom and Ireland in respect of the area of freedom, security and justice, annexed to the TEU and to the TFEU, and without prejudice to Article 4 of that Protocol, Ireland is not taking part in the adoption of this Regulation and is not bound by it or subject to its application.


(18) Regulations (EU) 2019/816 and (EU) 2019/818 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(19)  Since the objectives of this Regulation cannot be sufficiently achieved by the Member States but can rather, by reason of its scale and effects, be better achieved at Union level, the Union may adopt measures, in accordance with the principle of subsidiarity as set out in Article 5 TEU. In accordance with the principle of proportionality as set out in that Article, this Regulation does not go beyond what is necessary in order to achieve those objectives.

(20) The European Data Protection Supervisor was consulted, in accordance with Article 41(2) of Regulation (EU) 2018/1725 of the European Parliament and the Council[8],

HAVE ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:
