SIS II Supervision Coordination Group
The Schengen Information System II Supervision Coordination Group (“SIS II SCG”) is a body set up by the SIS II Regulation and the SIS II Decision (both referred to as “the SIS II legal framework”) to ensure a coordinated supervision in the area of personal data protection of the SIS II large-scale information system.
