Projects Schengen and Smart Borders
SIS-II: Information system Schengen - II
The information system Schengen second generation, SIS II, replaced the SIS I in April 2013, and is an information system on a large scale with descriptions of people and objects.
Agents of border controls, customs officers, police forces and the competent authorities for the issuance of visas for the whole area Schengen may use it to ensure a high degree of safety.
SIRENE (Suplementary Information REquests on the National Entries)
SIRENE Offices departments are composed of translators, lawyers and operational staff, that allow police collaboration between different countries Schengen Area. The Office SIRENE Spain fits into the organizational structure of the national police.
For the development of their functions require a technical infrastructure consisting of hardware and software: Database servers, server FAX and email and PC ’ s, in addition to a management application forms, email, police cooperation, etc. (application SIRENE).
Security Plan for systems SIS II – SIRENE - BDSN
The requirement that the responsibility of custody and administration of the national part of the SIS II claims raises the need to ensure that the risks to which is subject information security are known, assumed, managed and minimized by the Spanish National Authority (secretariat of state of security).
The goal of the project is to develop a Plan of information security SIS II, encompassing in its scope to systems SIRENE II and BDSN, directly linked and related to the first.
Smart Borders: system of entries and exits (Entry-Exit System)
The system will be electronically the time and place of entry and exit of third-country nationals admitted for a short stay in the territory of the member states, and to calculate the duration of their stay authorized.
This will optimize space management Schengen towards a strong protection.
Smart Borders: European System of information and travel Authorisation (ETIAS)
ETIAS is a system for authorization and information prior to travel for travelers from third countries exempted from visa. Its main function is to verify if a national of a third country without a visa meet the entry requirements before travelling to the area Schengen.
The information submitted through an online request before your arrival to borders, allows the evaluation prior to travel of the risks of irregular migration, security or risk controls of public health. This will be processed automatically each application against the databases of UE relevant, and a watch list ETIAS dedicated.
Advanced information system passengers (APIS)
The system captures identity data of passengers travelling to Spain from outside of space Schengen by air or sea. With such data a study was carried out crossed against the different databases of points we have at their disposal the FFCCSE (BDSN and SIS), to detect possible positives of passengers with outstanding points.
This information is sent in real time to control agents of borders to executing conduct associated to the detention and, if applicable, the person in question.
Passenger Name Record (PNR)

Smart Borders: Command and Control
