Opinia EKES-u: Screening regulation, amended proposal revising the asylum procedures regulation and the amended proposal revising the Eurodac regulation

This opinion will focus on three of the nine instruments contained in the New Pact on Migration and Asylum released by the European Commission in November 2020. The opinion deals with: i) the new screening regulation; ii) the amended proposal revising the asylum procedures regulation; iii) the amended proposal for a recast Eurodac regulation. The EESC believes that the new regulations make a positive contribution to more effective EU border security. Nevertheless the EESC questions the effective implementation of the proposed new procedures and underlines that the effectiveness of the need to be constantly measured through systems monitoring respect for fundamental rights, particularly as regards the rights of vulnerable people.
