Regulation (EU) 2021/1149 - formally adopted by the European Union on 7 July 2021 - establishing the Internal Security Fund (ISF) for the period 2021-2027.
This Regulation establishes the Internal Security Fund for the period between 2021 and 2027. It lays down the wider policy objective of the Fund, the specific objectives and measures to implement them, the budget for the period 2021-2027, the forms of EU funding and the rules for providing such funding.
The main objectives of the ISF is to contribute to security in the European Union (EU), in particular by tackling terrorism and radicalisation, serious and organised crime and cybercrime and by assisting and protecting victims of crime. The Fund is expected to address situations resulting from newly emerging security threats or other situations that require immediate action which cannot be addressed by Member States on their own.
The draft law was tabled by the European Commission 13 June 2018 in the framework of its proposals on the wider Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) for 2021-2027. The plenary of the European Parliament adopted a negotiating position in March 2019. The Council of the European Union adopted its general approach on this file on 7 June, excluding the provisions relating to the wider financial framework. A political agreement between Member States on the financial ceilings of the wider MFF was reached in July 2020, followed by an interinstitutional agreement in November. The co-legislators reached an informal agreement on a compromise text concerning this file on 10 December 2020. This was formally endorsed by the Council of the European Union on 14 June 2021 and by the Parliament on 6 July. The Act was signed by the co-legislators on 7 July 2021 and published in the Official Journal on 15 July 2021.
