Regulation (EU) No 603/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 June 2013 on the establishment of ‘Eurodac’ for the comparison of fingerprints for the practical application of Regulation (EU) No 604/2013 establishing the criteria and mechanisms for determining the Member State responsible for examining an application for international protection lodged in one of the Member States by a third-country national or a stateless person and on requests for the comparison with Eurodac data by Member States’ law enforcement authorities and Europol for law enforcement purposes, and amending Regulation (EU) No 1077/2011 establishing a European Agency for the operational management of large-scale IT systems in the area of freedom, security and justice.
Regulation (EU) 2021/1133 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 7 July 2021 lays down how interoperability and the conditions for the consultation of the data stored in SIS, Eurodac and ECRIS-TCN as well as of the Europol data by the VIS automated process to identify hits are to be implemented. That is why it was necessary to amend Regulations (EU) No 603/2013, (EU) 2016/794 ), (EU) 2018/1862, (EU) 2019/816 and (EU) 2019/818 of the European Parliament and the Council to connect the VIS to the other EU information systems and Europol data.
This Regulation shall enter into force on the twentieth day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union and apply from the date of the start of operation of VIS under Article 11 of Regulation (EU) 2021/1134. (No later than 31 December 2023, the Commission shall adopt a decision utilizing an implementing act setting the date on which VIS operations start pursuant).
Regulation (EU) 2017/1953 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 25 October 2017 amending Regulations (EU) No 1316/2013 and (EU) No 283/2014 as regards the promotion of internet connectivity in local communities.
Regulation (EU) 2021/1153 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 7 July 2021 establishes the Connecting Europe Facility for the period of the Multiannual Financial Framework 2021-2027 by setting out the digital connectivity infrastructure projects of common interest needed to meet the Union’s Digital Single Market objectives and lays down the forms of Union funding and the rules for providing such funding.
It repealed Regulations (EU) No 1316/2013 and (EU) No 283/2014 because the objectives of this Regulation cannot be sufficiently achieved by the Member States but can instead be better achieved at the Union level (principle of subsidiarity).
However, the effects of Article 29 of Regulation (EU) No 1316/2013, which amends the Annex to Regulation (EU) No 913/2010 regarding the list of freight corridors, were being maintained.
Furthermore, this Regulation shall not affect the continuation or modification of actions initiated under Regulation (EU) No 1316/2013, which shall continue to apply to those actions until their closure and the financial envelope for the CEF may also cover the technical and administrative assistance expenses necessary to ensure the transition between the CEF and the measures adopted according to Regulation (EU) No 1316/2013.
This Regulation should enter into force as a matter of urgency and apply, with retroactive effect, from 1 January 2021.
