European Legislation 2007/533/GAI (12/06/2007)

Type: Decision

Authority: Council of the European Union

Date: 06/12/2007

Subject: This Decision constitutes the necessary legislative basis for governing the second generation Schengen Information System (SIS II) with respect to matters falling within the scope of the Treaty on European Union. SIS II should constitute a compensatory measure contributing to maintaining a high level of security within the area of freedom, security and justice of the European Union by supporting operational cooperation between police authorities and judicial authorities in criminal matters. The wide access by more authorities and the enlargement of the type of data contained risk to transform the SIS II in a duplicate of the Europol Information System.

Classification: Freedoms - Art. 8 Personal data: fairly processing - Personal data: consent
