"EU Member States and agencies have access to biographic and biometric data of suspected non-EU terrorists received from selected trusted third countries. The relevant information has been entered in the SIS by willing Member States, after having been duly verified. Important work has been carried out as part of a project established by Europol and a number of Member States in the framework of the Counter-Terrorism Programme Board (CTPB), with the aim of agreeing on a procedure for creating new Article 36 alerts (discreet checks) based on FTF lists coming from Western Balkan countries, and a post-hit information flow.
EU institutions, agencies and Member States are invited to share their views on a procedure for entering information from trusted third countries on non-EU terrorist suspects in the SIS." [emphasis in original]
