The EU Border Guard takes shape


Back in December 2015, the Commission proposed the text of a Regulation creating a new EU Border Guard, which would replace the current Frontexagency. EU leaders have already asked for this law to be agreed by June. Most of the text of this proposal has already been agreed by the Council, although after that it will still have to be agreed with the European Parliament.

To aid those who are concerned about or interested in the development of this Agency, I have consolidated all of the parts agreed to date by the Council on the basis of Council documents 6359/1/16, 6884/16 and 6652/16. The state of play is set out in doc 6744/16.

The rest of the text has yet to be agreed, so I have retained the text of the original proposalfor this remainder(keep in mind that this will likely be amended though). I have left out the preamble, except for the parts which have been agreed by the Council to date. The rest of the proposed preamble will also likely be amended during negotiations.
