Dublin II

The Dublin II Regulation (Council Regulation No. 343/2003) aims to ensure that an asylum application is to be examined by only one Member State.  Dublin II sets out the criteria for establishing which Member State is responsible for processing the asylum claim.

The Regulation was one of the first asylum harmonisation laws to be adopted as part of a project to create a common asylum procedure.
