Question écrite de M. Georg MAYER - Commission européenne

Question de M. Georg MAYER, M. Harald VILIMSKY,

Diffusée le 20 mars 2024

Subject: Frontex

The former head of the European Border and Coast Guard Agency (Frontex), Fabrice Leggeri, believes that it is no longer fit for purpose and has been hijacked by the Commission. He has also stated that Frontex needs to refocus on its role as a border protection agency.

1. What is the Commission’s view of Frontex’s fitness for purpose and effectiveness in recent years?

2. What is the Commission’s view of the criticism levelled by the former head of Frontex and does it intend to take this criticism into account when making any changes to it?

3. How does the Commission intend to ensure that this actually happens and that Frontex does not simply encourage the influx of migrants?

Réponse - Commission européenne

Answer given by Ms Johansson on behalf of the European Commission (19 June 2024)

The evaluation of the European Border and Coast Guard (EBCG) Regulation (1) and review of the Standing Corps (2) show that the Agency is fit for purpose. In particular, since 2019, the Agency has stepped up its operational support to Member States in various areas of its mandate.

This includes increasing the number of joint operations and personnel deployed, providing support in return-related activities, and reinforcing its operational engagement with partner countries.

As concluded in the evaluation, the Commission does not see an immediate need to revise the EBCG Regulation. To enhance the implementation of the current mandate, the Commission adopted an action plan (3) that identifies main measures to be implemented by different responsible actors, including the Agency.

This will even better equip the Agency to perform the tasks that are part of its mandate, namely effective external border management and return. As a decentralised EU Agency, Frontex is an autonomous body, with its own legal personality and the power to take individual decisions.

In line with its mandate, Frontex’s operational activities notably aim to detect, control and prevent unauthorised border crossings.

The Commission, as a member of the Agency’s Management Board, will continue to evaluate the effectiveness of the Agency’s performance in relation to this task, in the context of the implementation of the action plan and by overseeing the functioning of the Agency.
