Deal on a stronger mandate for eu-LISA approved by Civil Liberties MEPs

Civil Liberties MEPs backed the informal agreement between Parliament and Council negotiators yesterday on new rules to strengthen the mandate of eu-LISA.

With the strengthened mandate, eu-LISA will have better capacities to improve and develop EU information systems for security, border management and migration and to ensure interoperability between these systems.

Civil Liberties MEPs backed the deal in a vote on Monday by 47 votes to 4, with 6 abstentions.

Next steps

The agreed text now needs to be formally approved by the Parliament as a whole and the Council of the EU before entering into force. EP plenary is scheduled to vote on the agreed text in July.
