European Border and Coast Guard: Civil Liberties Committee approved the compromise text agreed with Parliament and Council negotiators

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 6 luglio 2016

The creation of an EU border control system received the green light from the Civil Liberties Committee on Monday evening. A provisional agreement on this file was reached between the Council, Parliament and Commission on 21 June. It is now up to Parliament as a whole and member states to endorse the agreement. Parliament will vote on the agreed text on Wednesday, 6 July at noon. The cornerstone of the deal is to upgrade today’s Frontex border agency, which, together with national border management authorities, will form a European Border and Coast Guard.If approved, the regulation would enable extra border guard teams (European Border and Coast Guard or EBCG) to be rapidly deployed to EU countries whose external borders are under pressure. National authorities would still manage their borders day to day, but could seek help from the new agency in a crisis. This legislation is expected to enter into force this autumn.
