Bulgaria: Improving Security through Information Sharing: Council Agrees Negotiating Mandate on Interoperability

On 14 June 2018, the Permanent Representatives Committee (Coreper) endorsed, on behalf of the Council, a mandate for negotiations on two regulations establishing a framework for interoperability between EU information systems in the area of justice and home affairs. On the basis of this mandate, the Council Presidency will start negotiations with the European Parliament once the latter has adopted its position.

"For information sharing to work to its fullest it is not only important to have the right information but also to be able to make the right links. By ensuring the interoperability of existing EU information systems we will be able to better connect the dots, which means better protection and security for everyone."

Valentin Radev, Bulgarian minister of interior

The proposed regulations aim to improve security within the EU, make checks at external borders more effective and efficient, and prevent and combat illegal migration. Interoperability between information systems will allow the systems to complement each other, help facilitate the correct identification of persons and contribute to fighting identity fraud.
