EU borders: Civil Liberties MEPs vote to step up checks and data protection

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 1 marzo 2017

europeCivil Liberties MEPs voted on Monday for stronger protection and a shorter retention period for data stored in the new EU entry/exit system, which is designed to modernise and step up checks on non-EU nationals travelling to the European Union.The EU entry-exit system will speed up and strengthen border checks at the EU’s outer borders on non-EU nationals travelling to the EU. It will replace the stamping of passports with an electronic system that stores data on the traveller, so as to facilitate fast crossings while making it easy to detect over-stayers and document or identity fraud.
The proposed system aims to check that the authorised duration of a stay in the Schengen area is respected (90 days in any 180 day period) while at the same time strengthening security.Lead MEP Agustín Díaz de Mera (EPP, ES) said: “The approval of the Smart Borders legislative text clears the way to open negotiations with the Council and the Commission for a swifter and safer (registry) system external border crossings into the Schengen area. This is an indispensable tool for the security of European citizens”.His draft resolution was adopted by 38 votes to seven, with one abstention.
