New SIS II Release Successfully Deployedhttps://www.eulisa.europa.eu/Newsroom/News/Pages/New-SIS-II-Release-Successfully-Deployed.aspxNew SIS II Release Successfully Deployed10/01/2020 10:30:00<div>A new release of the Schengen Information System (SIS II) has been successfully deployed earlier this week. Adhering to the new legal base, version 9.3.0 includes new access control features that enable Europol, Eurojust and Frontex to query all types of alerts in the system and perform fingerprint and extended search queries.</div><div><br></div><div>SIS II acts as an information sharing system between all the countries that use it and holds information in the form of "alerts". Each Person alert can contain biographical information such as, name, date of birth, gender and nationality. SIS II can also store fingerprints and photographs of the person an alert is related to.</div><div><br></div><div>In addition, Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS) functionality for SIS II (initially introduced in March 2018) has been enriched with search on slaps – an alternate method of collecting flat fingerprints that helps prevent mistakes or fraud.</div><div><br></div><div>SIS II is a highly efficient large-scale information system that supports law enforcement cooperation and external border control throughout the Member States of the European Union (and Schengen Associated Countries). It enables competent authorities, for example police officers and border guards, to enter and consult alerts on specific categories of wanted or missing persons and objects.<br></div><p><br></p>
Third Working Group for Carriers Meeting in Brusselshttps://www.eulisa.europa.eu/Newsroom/News/Pages/Third-Working-Group-for-Carriers-Meeting-in-Brussels.aspxThird Working Group for Carriers Meeting in Brussels20/12/2019 10:00:00<div>On 19 December 2019, in Brussels, eu-LISA organised the third meeting of the informal Working Group for Carriers, in collaboration with the European Commission (DG HOME).</div><div> <br> </div><div>The meeting tackled legal, operational and technical aspects, in the context of the Entry/Exit System (<a href="https://eulisa.europa.eu/Activities/Large-Scale-It-Systems/EES">EES</a>) and the European Travel Information and Authorisation System (<a href="https://eulisa.europa.eu/Activities/Large-Scale-It-Systems/Etias">ETIAS</a>) Web Services implementation.</div><div> <br> </div><div>The Working Group for Carriers (WG) is an informal coordination body between eu-LISA, the European Commission, Frontex and carrier associations (for carriers operating at air and sea borders, and international carriers transporting groups overland by coach). According to the regulations, carriers will have to query EES and ETIAS and receive answers regarding the status of travellers. EES replaces the manual stamping of passports with an electronic record of entries and exits, and carriers will verify if a third-country national travelling to the EU with a short-stay, single or double entry visa has already used the number of entries authorised by their visa. Once ETIAS enters into operation, carriers will have to verify, prior to boarding, that their visa-exempt passengers have a valid travel authorisation.</div><div> <br> </div><div>Information about the meetings' conclusions is published regularly on our dedicated <a href="/About-Us/Organisation/working-group-for-carriers">page</a>.<br></div><p> <br> </p><br>
