Guide for authorities when taking fingerprints for Eurodac
Yesterday the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights published a Guide for authorities when taking fingerprints for Eurodac. This leaflet purports to assist officers and authorities to inform asylum applicants and migrants – in an understandable and accessible way – about the processing of their fingerprints in Eurodac, the EU’s asylum fingerprint database.
The production of the leaflet is a joint effort by the Fundamental Rights Agency and the Eurodac Supervision Coordination Group, consisting of representatives of each Member State’s data protection authority supervising the Eurodac Regulation and the European Data Protection Supervisor.
The Guide is available here.
