INTERPOL and Frontex Launch Travel Document Information System

Frontex and INTERPOL have launched the Electronic Library Document System (FIELDS) with a demonstration of the system at France’s Lyon Airport.

FIELDS provides information on travel documents, such as their security features. This information was collected by Frontex and is used directly for border control and document checks by law enforcement authorities of the Member States. The system can display original and genuine documents and the main forgeries detected on that type of document. It will facilitate the work of first-line border control officers, as it has been designed as a fast and easy to use search engine to support immediate operational decision making while performing document checks.

Document fraud is recognized as a global challenge for migration management. It is the driver of many other criminal activities, such as migrant smuggling and trafficking, terrorist mobility, smuggling of drugs or weapons.
