Abstract: This report presents the results of a JRC study on the readiness and availability of Automatic Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS) technologies for their introduction in the second generation Schengen Information System (SIS-II), The study summarises a review of the scientific literature, visits to authorities managing AFIS in nine Member States and in the United States of America and consultations with eu-LISA and with AFIS vendors. An external scientific board of international experts reviewed the results and conclusions of the study. The report concludes that AFIS technology has reached a satisfactory level of readiness and availability and proposes a series of recommendations in order to accomplish a successful implementation of a SIS-II AFIS.
