Proposal for a regulation on establishing the European Border Surveillance System (EUROSUR) (Brussels, 12 December 2011)

The necessity to further develop the European Border Surveillance System (EUROSUR) in order to allow Member States’ authorities to carry out border surveillance activities and the FRONTEX to share operational information and improve cooperation asked for the introduction of a legal framework focusing mostly on reinforcing the control of the Schengen external borders. The purpose of the legislative proposal is to improve the situational awareness and reaction capability of Member States and the Agency when preventing irregular migration and cross-border crime at the external land and maritime borders. The proposal provides clear regulations concerning the responsibilities and competencies for each party involved and the means of implementation of the common framework.
