The European Agency for the operational management of large IT systems in the area of freedom, security and justice (also known as eu-LISA) manages the Second Generation Schengen Information System (SIS II), the EURODAC system for storing the fingerprints of asylum seekers and certain illegal migrants and the Schengen Visa Information System (VIS). Of these, the UK takes part in EURODAC and the police and judicial cooperation aspects of SIS II. The Government considers that eu-LISA manages these systems effectively.

The UK contributes to eu-LISA for the management of the systems we take part in. Our contribution is made through our payment to the EU budget as a whole, and not through a direct payment to eu-LISA.
