"Under the present Visa Code (Regulation 810/2009), the possibility for Member States to authorize other Member States to take a final decision on their behalf on visa applications has created serious obstacles to effectively remedy wrongful refusal decisions. The proposal for the recast (COM(2014) 164 final) does not address this problem. In fact, if the present text is adopted without the amendments proposed in this note, things may become even worse, as the number of problematic cases is very likely to increase once representation becomes mandatory."
