Education and awareness are key elements for the usage of relatively rare documents. Therefore, Commission representatives are actively spreading the word about the European Union Laissez-Passer. Even after 4 years in circulation, it is not yet widely known and more education work is necessary.
Most recently, Mrs. Maresa Meissl, Head of Unit HR.DS.3 Information Security, gave a presentation during the Intergraf Security Printer’s Conference in Copenhagen speaking about acceptance, entitlement and border issues of the EU laissez-passer. The interested audience consisted of representatives of IATA; IOM, Interpol and other international organisations, as well as border management staff of many European, as well as some African and Asian countries. This presentation was one of a series of other events that is targeted to eliminate the remaining recognition issues of the EU LP.
