BSRBCCThe Baltic Sea Region Border Control Cooperation (BSRBCC) was established at the 5th Ministerial Session of the CBSS in 1996 at the level of the heads of the relevant national authorities in the fields of Border/Frontier/Coast Guards. The BSRBCC focuses on security-related issues concerning border control in the Baltic Sea Region. Among the most important issues on its agenda are: developing of practical forms of cooperation, simplifying communication routines between the parties (e.g. the development of the data transmission system COASTNET), and cooperating with FRONTEX; sea exercises and operations; exchanging information about the tasks and authorities of border services in the area of security controls at sea ports, marinas and sea areas; counteracting terrorism; and exchanging experiences and evaluations of existing standards of security controls.
