eu-LISA has established the ECRIS-TCN Advisory Group to build expertise related to ECRIS-TCN and the ECRIS reference implementation, in particular in the context of preparation of its annual work programme and its annual activity report. The Advisory Group also provides the ECRIS-TCN Programme Management Board and eu-LISA's Management Board with relevant technical expertise to support their tasks and follows-up on the preparation of the Member States.
The ECRIS-TCN Advisory Group is composed of national project managers and experts from the Member States fully bound under Union law by the legislative instruments governing ECRIS-TCN, and one representative each from the European Commission, the European Public Prosecutor's Office, EUROPOL and EUROJUST. The ECRIS-TCN Advisory Group meets regularly and reports to the ECRIS-TCN PMB during the implementation phase. It is chaired by eu-LISA during the design and development phase of the system.
