Implementing API/PNR and Entry/Exit programmes at maritime borders

About This Webinar

The use of API and PNR data is set to provide border authorities and law enforcement agencies with vital criminal intelligence, allowing them to detect suspicious travel patterns and identify associates of criminals and terrorists.

The implementation of the EU’s new ETIAS Entry/Exit system, due to start at the end of 2022, will also provide an important additional layer of security for Schengen members, as well as facilitate easier passage for those visiting member states.

However, port, cruise and ferry operators and border authorities face unique challenges when it comes to the implementation of these programmes. This webinar will look at the operational and technological challenges of implementing these important programmes within the port environment.
