Schen­gen Eva­lua­ti­on 2018: Short­co­mings in the Can­ton of Lucerne

Appar­ent­ly, the EU Com­mis­si­on of Experts has iden­ti­fi­ed various short­co­mings in the 2018 Schen­gen eva­lua­ti­on of the Con­fe­de­ra­ti­on as well as the Can­ton of Lucer­ne (repre­sen­ting the can­tons). This is repor­ted by the Luzer­ner Zei­tung on March 22, 2019. The­se fin­dings led to seven recom­men­da­ti­ons of the EU Coun­cil of Mini­sters to the Can­ton of Lucer­ne, accor­ding to Luzer­ner Zei­tung in par­ti­cu­lar the following:

  • The pos­si­bi­li­ty that the data pro­tec­tion offi­cer can be dis­missed for “good cau­se” is to be abolished.
  • The data pro­tec­tion offi­cer should be able to make legal­ly bin­ding decisions.
  • The data pro­tec­tion offi­cer should be given suf­fi­ci­ent finan­cial and per­so­nal resources.
  • The data pro­tec­tion offi­cer should now have bud­get aut­ho­ri­ty and be able to hire his own staff.
  • When pro­ce­s­sing per­so­nal data, the can­ton must ensu­re that the lawful­ness is checked more fre­quent­ly. This con­cerns data in the Schen­gen and Visa Infor­ma­ti­on Systems.
