Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on Schengen Information System (SIS), SIS II and the registration of inadmissible third-country nationals. Aside from SIS II, two other large-scale information systems provide for the exchange of information on third-country nationals: Eurodac and Visa Information System (VIS). Firstly, both VIS and Eurodac are used for immigration control and only include data on third-country nationals. Therefore, the same problems which arise for persons reported in SIS or SIS II, may also arise in relation to Eurodac and VIS. Secondly, the use of VIS and Eurodac is closely related to the use of SIS II. Based on the so-called principle of interoperability , the European Union (EU) policy-makers envisage interlinking these databases with SIS II. Finally, the chapter highlights the most important differences and similarities between VIS and Eurodac, on the one hand, and SIS II on the other.

Keywords: Eurodac; European Union (EU); Schengen Information System (SIS); Visa Information System (VIS)
