Extracts from the press conference by Jacques Barrot on proposals to amend three existing legislative instruments of the Common European Asylum System

35 views

On 21/10/2009, Jacques Barrot, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Justice, Freedom and Security, presented a proposal to improve and harmonize the European asylum procedure. It amends three of the existing legislative instruments of the Common European Asylum System: the Directive on reception conditions for asylum-seekers; the Dublin Regulation which determines the Member State responsible for an asylum application; and the Eurodac Regulation, a data base containing the fingerprints of asylum seekers. In the framework of the Reception Conditions Directive, the proposal aims to ensure that detention is used only in exceptional cases and that mechanisms are established at national level. Regarding Dublin Regulation, the proposal establishes a mechanism of suspension of Dublin transfers in order to avoid that Member States get particular pressure on their asylum systems. It intends to facilitate the right to family reunification. On the Eurodac Regulation, the proposal establishes rules to ensure truly prompt transmission of fingerprints to the Central Unit of Eurodac.
