Information on parliamentary scrutiny

Passed on to the Committee in Internal Affairs, Public Administration and Local Self-Government. The document has been discussed at its 12th meeting of 5 June 2013.


And at it's 66th meeting of 14 June 2013 the Committee on EU Affairs of the National Assembly of the Republic of Slovenia adopted the following Position:


The Republic of Slovenia supports the Proposal for a Regulation amending the Schengen Borders Code which is a necessary consequence of proposals for regulations on the establishment of the Entry/Exit System and the Registered Traveller Programme. It believes that the proposal for a regulation is a useful basis for further discussion, while during the negotiation process Slovenia will try to give effect to the supplements of certain provisions.


The Republic of Slovenia will strive to achieve that when processing data, the principle of minimization is observed, placing a special emphasis on human dignity. Likewise, the Republic of Slovenia will endeavour to ensure that clear intentions of processing of personal data are determined, as well as the description of authorities which are allowed to process personal data.


The Republic of Slovenia will express its reservations to the following provisions:

- a written notice to the third country national on consulting the EES regarding the remaining period of authorised stay in the territory of Member States (Article 7) – this commitment represents an additional administrative burden and will consequently result in the extension of the duration of border control and therefore longer waiting times;

- considering the envisaged obligation to check the authenticity of the chip in biometric passport, the establishment of a system of a structured exchange of tools for such verification without any additional financial consequences should be proposed
