Chapter Summary

This chapter examines the question of whether the development of the so-called ?European information network? can be reconciled with the basic principles of data protection law. It summarises main findings with regard to the law and practice in France, Germany and the Netherlands. The chapter considers the new Regulation 1987/2006 regarding SIS II of December 2006 against the background of my findings on ?SIS I?. However, before going into the legal boundaries of the so-called ?European information network?, the chapter makes some general remarks with regard to the use of databases in the field of border and immigration control. In general, data protection law provides for procedural guarantees safeguarding, among other things, the transparency of the use of personal information and data- bases.

Keywords: data protection law; France; Germany; Netherlands; Schengen Information System (SIS)
