May 2012 - European Commission staff working document on Transport Security published on 31.05.2012
The Commission has published this Staff Working Document to consider what the focus of EU activity on transport security should be. The Commission does not bring forward any legislative proposals, but it does suggest areas for consideration, some of which could lead to recommendations for legislation at a later stage. The document is largely concerned with the land transport sector, which, with the exception of the movement of dangerous goods, is the least regulated mode at the EU level and where the Commission feels that there is a need to do more to improve security.

March 2010 - Regulation proposal to the European Parliament - JO 19.3.2010

For establishing an Agency for the operational management of large-scale IT systems in the area of freedom, security and justice.

In the margins of the Council, the Mixed Committee (the EU plus Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Switzerland) held an orientation debate on the possibility of setting up an agency for large-scale IT systems in the area of freedom, security and justice.

An agency for large-scale IT systems would be responsible for the operational management of VIS, SIS II and EURODAC, the IT system for comparing the fingerprints of asylum seekers and illegal immigrants, in order to facilitate the application of the Dublin II Regulation, which makes it possible to determine the Member State responsible for examining an asylum application. The new agency would also be charged with the operational aspects of any other large-scale IT system developed in the future in the area of freedom, security and justice.
