The new EU agency for management of large-scale IT systems up and running

On 1 December 2012, the new European Agency tasked with the operational management of large-scale IT systems in the home affairs area will start its operations in Tallinn. The Agency will fulfil the operational management tasks for the Visa Information System (VIS), EURODAC and, as from spring 2013, the second generation Schengen Information System (SIS II). In the future, the Agency may also be invited to develop and manage other IT systems in this policy area. The Agency will also ensure that security and data protection requirements are fully met.
