Chapter Summary

As one of the initiators of the Schengen Agreements, Germany played an important role in the development and the architecture of ?Schengen?, especially the Schengen Information System (SIS). It is not easy to describe the implementation of the CISA in Germany and, especially, the practical operation of the NSIS and the registration of third- country nationals, because of the federal structure of Germany. Providing a complete picture of the German implementation of Schengen law would require thorough research of data and case law in each of the German Länder. This chapter provides a general description of the general rules and principles which are applicable throughout the federal state. It deduces general rules on the registration and use of data concerning ?inadmissible aliens? in the NSIS, especially concerning their legal protection.

Keywords: CISA; Data Protection Law; Germany; Immigration Law; Schengen Agreements; Schengen Information System (SIS)
