The Audiovisual Production Unit of the European Commission has prepared a 60-minute video-dossier entitled "THE SCHENGEN CONVENTION" to mark the inauguration on 26th March of the "Schengen Information System". This is a computer network for Police co-operation as specified by the Schengen Convention and will interconnect seven of the nine signatories of the agreement. It permits the abolition of frontier controls on persons shifting them to a common external border. Background to the Schengen Convention, Schengen signature ceremonies I and II; Convention book, Schengen village. Entry into force of freedom of movement by air (Frankfurt in Germany, Roissy and Strasbourg in France, Milan in Italy); by land (motorways between Belgium and Luxembourg, control posts abandonned between Luxembourg and Germany and France); by sea: cargo and boat controls in the port of Rotterdam in the Netherlands and in Ostend in Belgium. III. Schengen information system: acceptable persons - common visa requirements and admitted objects. IV. Europol V. Meetings
