Evaluation of the logfiles of the Swiss Border Guard

Under the terms of the Schengen Association Agreement we conducted an evaluation of the logfiles of the Swiss Border Guard (SBG), end-users of the Schengen Information System (SIS). The evaluation of the logfiles showed that this organisation's access to the SIS is compliant with data protection laws.

Under the terms of the Schengen Association Agreement we conduct annual checks of the SIS end-users. In this instance we carried out a check among the employees of SBG Region IV. Our analysis looked at the logfiles of the national SIS provided to us by the Federal Office of Police. We examined the instances of access by 30 SBG Region IV employees over a week. The investigation showed that there had clearly been no instances of misconduct or disproportionate action during any of the customs checks. We thus concluded the investigation without making any recommendations.
