Schengen Information System II Awareness Campaign
SIS II Supervision Coordination Group
In June 2013, the first official meeting of the SIS II Supervision Coordination Group was held. This group replaced the Schengen Joint Supervisory Authority (JSA) after SIS II's entry into force in April 2013.
The SIS II Supervision Coordination Group (SIS II SCG) is a platform allowing data protection authorities responsible for monitoring the Schengen Information System to work together. The SIS II SCG is made up of a representative of every Member State's data protection authority and the European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS).
The SIS II SCG is responsible for monitoring activities and joint inspections, for verifying compliance with the data protection provisions of the Regulation (EC) No 1987/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 20 December 2006 on the establishment, operation and use of the second-generation Schengen Information System (SIS II Regulation) and the Council Decision 2007/533/JHA of 12 June 2007 on the establishment, operation and use of the second generation Schengen Information System (SIS II Decision), for drawing up recommendations for Member States and the central unit. During its regular meetings, participants share experiences, discuss common problems relating to the use of SIS II, and look for solutions.
