Joint processing pilots
The European Commission presented a 'Study on the feasibility and legal and practical implications of establishing a mechanism for the joint processing of asylum applications on the territory of the EU'. Besides implying fields where joint processing seems feasible, the study identified and explored different scenarios. In the summer of 2014 EASO launched several preliminary pilot projects in order to determine possible fields of the asylum process for joint processing exercises. A technical report was presented in September 2014 to the EASO Management Board on the outcome of the joint... processing preliminary pilots. Member States agreed to continue exploring the joint processing initiative by authorising EASO to organise a second generation of complex pilot projects testing the possibilities of processing real asylum caseload by caseworkers of other Member States.
