The new version of the Schengen Information System

The new version of SIS was designed to make Schengen area even more secure and to provide the member states with further effective means of cooperation. One of the improvements that the recast version of SIS brings are new categories of alerts that can be entered into the system. These new categories include alerts related to vulnerable persons and alerts related to children who are in danger of being kidnapped. These new alerts therefore serve as means to protect children from getting kidnapped and taken away to third countries. In order to help member states in their fight against illegal immigration, the recast version of SIS also introduces new alerts on return of illegally staying third-country nationals and brings improved tools to better identify non-EU nationals.
