When will EESSI be implement?
When will EESSI be implement in all Member States?
The central EESSI system was made available by the Commission in July 2017. Following this, Member States have two years to finalise their national implementation of EESSI and to connect their social security institutions to the cross-border electronic exchanges.
Secure handling of personal data:
- EESSI will introduce the use of a common secure infrastructure for cross-border data exchange between social security institutions.
- It will enable message exchange between national institutions, but the system will not create a database to store such messages and personal data centrally. The content of the messages will only be available to the relevant institutions, and Member States will remain responsible to ensure a high standard of data protection, in line with EU rules.
- EESSI will follow the latest standards in IT security.
