Report on ICT Solutions for External Borders published today

This report summarises the outcomes and recommendations of the Working Group (WG) on ICT Solutions for Member States with External Borders (sea/land), as mandated by the Entry/Exit System (EES) Programme Management Board.

The scope of the WG was to facilitate the work towards a viable solution and a common architecture for the implementation of EES at the external land and sea borders. Thus, the WG discussed and defined requirements towards a practical technology solution that will be deployed on the land and sea borders in a unified way.

The solution should ensure the fulfilment of all EES requirements, particularly connected with the use of biometrics, taking into account that only limited time for border control is available. That means the ICT solution should be quick enough not to cause unreasonably long waiting times at the borders.
