Press Release: EU document security – Commission urges Bulgaria to implement rules on e-passports and e-residence permits

The Commission today addressed a letter of formal notice to Bulgaria for not having established a Single Point of Contact as required by EU document security legislation. The establishment of such contact points is mandatory. They allow for the exchange of information necessary to access the fingerprint images stored on e-passports and e-residence permits for third country nationals. By not implementing this important part of the EU document security legislation, Bulgaria prevents other Member States from securely accessing and verifying the fingerprints stored on the chips in Bulgarian passports. All Single Points of Contact should have been operational by 20 May 2012. This procedure replaces an earlier one on the same matter which has since been withdrawn for procedural reasons. If Bulgaria does not act within the next two months, the Commission may decide to send a reasoned opinion, the next stage in the infringement procedure. (For more information: Natasha Bertaud – Tel.: +32 229 67456; Markus Lammert – Tel.: +32 229 58602)
