New Agency for operational management of large-scale IT systems

Wednesday, 21 March, 2012

The first meeting of the Management Board of the new EU Agency responsible for information systems in the Home Affairs area will take place on tomorrow in Tallinn.

The core mission of the Agency will be to fulfil the operational management tasks for the Visa Information System (VIS), EURODAC and, as from March 2013, the second generation Schengen Information System (SIS II). Its main task will be to ensure that these systems operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
