EU border agency says biometrics interoperability framework includes robust safeguards

An article in Biometric Update covers Statewatch's critical report of the Common Identity Repository (CIR) project, which will collect biometric information on both European citizens and non-Europeans who need a short-term visa, and on third-country nationals exempted from the visa requirements.

"Statewatch and Codastory both mention issues with the CIR project in their respective reports, such as racial profiling, child protection, false positives and the potential for misuse of the database, especially among immigration officials."
