The proposal, which also presents a statistical report on the functioning of the European Criminal Records Information System (ECRIS), supplements the current ECRIS with a centralised system (ECRIS-TCN). It will allow Member States to efficiently identify which EU countries hold conviction information on non-EU citizens and to share information on previous convictions anywhere in the EU.
The European Commission also adopted a new proposal enlarging the mandate of the European Agency for the operational management of large-scale IT systems in the area of freedom, security and justice (eu-LISA). eu-LISA, which currently operates the Schengen Information System (SIS II), the Visa Information System (VIS) and the asylum and irregular migration database Eurodac, will also operate the ECRIS-TCN system.
