Eurodac right to information leaflet translated till sidans topp

Migrants and asylum applicants have the right to get information about why their fingerprints are collected in Eurodac, EU's IT system for asylum seekers and apprehended migrants. To guide authorities, a joint leaflet on how to understandably explain what Eurodac does is now available in various EU languages.

The leaflet offers guidance to authorities so they can comply with their obligation to clearly inform people about the purpose of storing digitalised pictures of their fingerprints and what happens to the data in Eurodac.

FRA developed and published the leaflet jointly with the Eurodac Supervision Coordination Group.

National data protection authorities translated the leaflet. It is now available in most EU languages, Icelandic and Norwegian.

Council seeks swift agreement on expanded migrant biometric database till sidans topp

The Slovenian Presidency of the Council is planning to accelerate negotiations on a vast expansion of the Eurodac database, which will hold sensitive data on millions of asylum seekers and migrants in an irregular situation, by 'delinking' the proposed rules from other EU asylum and migration laws under discussion.

See: NOTE from: Presidency to: Delegations: Amended proposal for a REGULATION OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL on the establishment of 'Eurodac' (Council doc. 11873/21, LIMITE, 15 September 2021):

"The main aim of these new amendments is to delink the text of the draft Regulation from the other proposals of the Pact which are under negotiation. This will make it possible to continue the negotiations and possibly proceed to the adoption of the Regulation. Consequently, references to the other proposals of the Pact were replaced by references to existing legislation and the newly proposed concepts which are under consideration (e.g. relocation and creation of a separate category of persons disembarked following SAR operations under AMMR, or screening under the Screening Regulation) were removed from the text."

Under the proposals, more personal data could be gathered from asylum seekers, and authorities would also be able to store data on irregular migrants, which would hold not just fingerprints but facial images and other information.

This change would be introduced without any need for agreement on other measures proposed as part of the EU's 'Pact on Migration and Asylum', a negotiating tactic that has also been used in talks on the revamped rules for the European Asylum Support Office, due to become the European Agency for Asylum.

Eurodac: From the Dublin system's sidekick to a database in support of EU policies till sidans topp

This working paper, by Dr Niovi Vavoula, provides us with an overview of subsequent amendments to the Eurodac Regulation, including the latest Amended proposal of the European Commission, one of the legislative files that accompanied the Pact on Asylum and Migration, published in September 2020.

Eurodac, which stands for European Dactyloscopy, is an EU-wide information system that primarily processes the fingerprints of asylum seekers and certain categories of irregular migrants. Operational since 2003, Eurodac constitutes the EU's first experiment with biometric identifiers and was designed to assist in the implementation of the Dublin system for the determination of the Member State responsible for examining an application for international protection.

On 4 May 2016, the Commission adopted a recast Eurodac proposal in the framework of revising the CEAS-related legal instruments. The proposal essentially detached Eurodac from its asylum framework and re-packaged it as a system pursuing "wider immigration purposes". On 23 September 2020, the Commission proposed further amendments to the Eurodac regime. The amended proposal prescribes several amendments to the functionalities of Eurodac both in the framework of CEAS and migration control and in an interoperable environment, whilst taking into account the 2018 interinstitutional agreement between the Council and the Parliament.
