Securing borders to preserve freedom of movement

Release Date: 16 April 2019
Defending the Schengen Zone of open internal EU borders, the EPP Group has worked hard to ensure the safety of Europeans. It has been a driving force behind the EU’s border and coast guard, the Passenger Name Record or PNR system for air travellers, and the ETIAS system that screens non-EU citizens, part of the EU’s Smart Borders package. The EU Border and Coast Guard Agency began with a force of 1,500 officers and Parliament has approved an increase to 10,000 by 2027.
