The EU has set up a number of large-scale IT systems including Eurodac; the Visa Information System; the Schengen Information System; the Customs Information System; the Internal Market Information System.

The supervision of these databases is shared between the national Data Protection Authorities and the EDPS.

Several different large-scale IT databases are used by the EU to facilitate police cooperation and to help manage borders and migration. The EU aims to improve the efficiency of these databases by making them more interoperable, or capable of communicating and exchanging information.
