Chapter Summary

In this study reference has been made to the establishment of Schengen Information System II (SIS II). But what has been lacking was SIS II legislation. The study has limited itself to analysis of the current SIS law. This postscript examines the main changes brought about by the legislative proposals and compares them to the current SIS rules to determine whether they strengthen/ weaken the Schengen data processing and data protection rules. The changes can be categorised under the following: Legal basis, Supervision, New data categories, New functions, Data protection, Individual participation. In conclusion, there is no doubt that the SIS II proposed legislation has some positive improvements on the current SIS law; some provisions are weaker than the current law. The SIS II proposed laws fall below the threshold of improvements set out in the study. The relevance of the study is not undermined by the proposed legislation.

Keywords: changes; data processing; data protection rules; Individual participation; legislative proposals; New functions; Postscript; Schengen Information System II; Supervision
