SIS alerts (in millions)

According to eu-LISA reports, the number of alerts entered into the SIS increased from 50 million to 76 million, between December 2013 and December 2017 (see Figure 2). However, the distribution of alerts and the use of the SIS have been uneven among Member States. In 2017, three Member States generated more than half of the total number of alerts: Italy (19 million) Germany (10 million) and France (11 million). During the reference period, the great majority of alerts in the SIS were related to documents issued. The number of alerts on persons increased slightly, from 861 900 in 2013 to 896 791 in 2017. The majority of alerts on persons in the SIS concerned refusals of entry or stay. The number of searches in the SIS increased from 1.2 billion to 5.1 billion between April 2013 and December 2017. However, in 2017, four Member States conducted about half of the searches: France (991 million), Spain (584 million), the UK (541 million) and Germany (497 million)
