Where to find Frontex documents?
The Public Register of documents is Frontex’s online document repository which replaced the ‘Key documents’ section of the Frontex website. All documents previously stored in ‘Key documents’ have been migrated to the Public Register of documents under their respective categories and subcategories.

How to search the register?
You can search for documents by typing search phrases (tags), documents’ titles or by selecting a relevant category, subcategory, year or language. To narrow down your search results, click on the ‘Advanced search options’ to select a requested publication date, category/subcategory or language of the document.

How to search by tags?
All documents have a set of tag words/terms assigned to them. The tags are based on terms that can be found throughout each document and describe/summarise its content. To see the tags of a document, click on ‘View details’. The tags will be displayed in the bottom left corner. When you click on a selected tag, all documents bearing the same tag will be retrieved.

Why can I not find a report after adding its reporting year in advanced search?
All documents in the register are added by their publication date, not their reporting period. Please note that some reports such as Consolidated Annual Activity Reports, Annual Risk Analysis, etc summarise activities of their reporting year, therefore their publication dates are in the following year. For example, the Consolidated Annual Activity Report 2020 was published in 2021 but it analyses information for 2020.

What are the ‘other document registers’?
Under a separate tab at the top of the landing page, you can also find links to other internal as well as external registers containing Frontex documents including:

How to read a document?
1. Select the document you wish to read;
2. Click on view details;
3. Select a language and document format from the dropdown list;
4. Click on the download button.
Depending on your browser’s settings you may open the document in a new tab or download it to your local computer.

What is the difference between ‘Grant proposals/procedures’ and ‘Grants awarded’?
In the Grant proposals/procedures register you can find the relevant information about grants and how to submit applications. The Grants awarded category of the register contains the list of awarded grants. The list is updated annually.

Why do I see only 5 documents on the landing page?
For your convenience, the landing page of the register shows only the latest 5 documents that were uploaded. When clicking on the number of all documents ( just above the records displayed), you can see a list of all documents available in the register.

Why can I only see the the description of the document but cannot download it?
In case of documents containing sensitive information such as personal data then the document cannot be published. On such occasions, the visitor does not have the possibility to view the document.

How to request access to Frontex documents?
In order to submit your application you are kindly requested to follow the instructions on Public Access to Documents section.

How to sort the listed documents on the grid?
The documents are listed by publication date. By clicking on the title of each column (you will see a blue arrow appear next to it) you can sort the listed documents alphabetically, by title and category, by publication date or by language.

Language versions
Some documents in the register may have several language versions. To choose or view a document in language other than English, find the English original, click on ‘View details’ and then choose the available language from the drop-down list to download the relevant version. You can also search a document by typing its title in the translated language version in the search bar on the landing page.
