1. fully agrees with the framework position of the Government Czech Republic to the proposal COM (2016) 270 final from June 1, 2016;

2. in accordance with its longstanding position approves those initiatives contained in the proposal which aim to make overall functioning of the Dublin system more efficient in order to be operational also in cases of increased influx of applicants for international protection; at the same time affirms also those initiatives that can help to prevent secondary movements and intentional abuse of Member States’ asylum systems;


3. however strongly rejects the Commission's proposal to introduce a so-called Corrective Allocation Mechanism as well as the financial solidarity contribution related to this mechanism, which considers to be inconsistent with the principle of subsidiarity pursuant to the Article 5, Paragraph 3 of the Treaty on European Union;

with reference to the above-mentioned conclusions calls on the Government of the Czech Republic to insist on deletion of the provisions establishing the Corrective Allocation Mechanism from the text of the proposal while discussing the Dublin regulation reform at the EU level and eventually to block adoption of the respective proposal as a whole;

approves the Framework Position of the Government of the Czech Republic to the proposal COM (2016) 271 final of 23 May 2016;

welcomes Commission's initiative to strengthen the mandate of the European Asylum Support Office, whose potential should be utilized primarily to provide support and help to the Member States that are under the undue pressure of asylum seekers;

disagrees, however, with the strengthening of the competences of this agency to the extent that it could on its own initiative or on the basis of Commission’s implementing decisions interfere to the competences of the Member States in the field of decision-making process on granting international protection;

9. in this context emphasizes, that the main responsibility for decision-making in asylum matters should be given exclusively to the Member States which specify, following their commitments arising for them from international and European law, by themselves the conditions for granting international protection on their territory;


10. at the same time rejects the proposed strengthening of the competencies given to the agency and to the Commission in the field of overall regular evaluation of the Member States’ asylum systems and the related imposition of corrective measures and their subsequent enforcement;


11. welcomes the Proposal for a Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council on the establishment of 'Eurodac' for the comparison of fingerprints for the effective application of [Regulation (EU) No 604/2013 establishing the criteria and mechanisms for determining the Member State responsible for examining an application for international protection lodged in one of the Member States by a third-country national or stateless person], for identifying an illegally staying third-country national or stateless persons and on requests for the comparison with Eurodac data by Member States’ law enforcement authorities and Europol for law enforcement purposes (recast) (COM (2016) 272 final);

12. considers this proposal to be an efficient contribution to the fight against illegal migration in the EU as well as a useful tool to facilitate return and readmission of persons residing illegally on its territory;
