The Agency, which started operations on December 1, 2012, is to provide a viable, long-term solution for the operational management of large-scale IT systems in the area of Home Affairs.
Initially, this agency will manage EURODAC, the Visa Information System (VIS) and the second-generation Schengen Information System (SIS II), which are all essential instruments in the implementation of EU asylum, migration and border management policies. At a later stage, after gradually building up its expertise, the Agency will develop into a centre of excellence for the development and operational management of other future systems in this policy area. The Agency is set up in the form of an independent European body (Regulatory Agency).
The core task of the Agency is to keep the IT systems under its responsibility functioning 24 hours a day, seven days a week, ensuring the continuous, uninterrupted exchange of data between national authorities. The Agency is also be responsible for adopting and implementing security measures, organising training for IT experts on the systems under its management, reporting, publishing statistics and monitoring research activities. The Agency needs to maintain the complete separation of data in the three systems and ensure that security and data protection requirements are fully met.
The seat of the Agency is in Tallinn, Estonia, while the operational management of the large-scale systems is carried out in Strasbourg, France with a backup site in Sankt Johann im Pongau, Austria.
