Frontex, the European Border and Coast Guard Agency
Council Regulation (EC) 2007/2004 of 26 Oct 2004 led to establishment of the European Agency for the Management of Operational Cooperation at the External Borders of the Member States of the European Union (Frontex). This Regulation was repealed by Regulation (EU) 2016/1624 of 14 Sep 2016, establishing Frontex, the European Border and Coast Guard Agency. The latest amendment of the Frontex mandate occurred when Regulation (EU) 2019/1896 of 13 Nov 2019 on the European Border and Coast Guard (OJ L 295, 14.11.2019, p. 1) came into force.
Promote, coordinate and develop European border management in line with the EU fundamental rights charter and the concept of Integrated Border Management.
