3. If the parties fail to reach an agreement, the party that did not issue the tender submits the matter to the common supervisory authority under Article 115, paragraph 1, for comment. Now that the Schengen Agreement is part of the Community acquis, it has lost to the EU Member States the status of a treaty which could only be amended in accordance with its terms. Instead, changes are made in accordance with the EU`s legislative procedure under the EU treaties.  Ratification by the former signatory states is not necessary to amend or repeal all or part of the previous Schengen acquis.  Acts setting out the conditions for accession to the Schengen area are now adopted by a majority of the EU`s legislative bodies. The new EU Member States do not sign the Schengen Agreement as such, but are required to implement the Schengen rules within the framework of existing EU legislation, which any new entrant must accept. [Citation required] With the entry into force on 1 May 1999 of the Schengen Protocol of the Treaty of Amsterdam of 2 October 1997, Schengen cooperation was transposed into EU law, initially solely on the basis of an international agreement. Below is a list of countries that fully implement the Schengen acquis (so-called fully implemented countries), as well as the modalities for the introduction or removal of border controls for the validity of the visa for the validity of the visa in any other country that has been fully implemented. Relations between Iceland and Norway, on the one hand, and Ireland and the United Kingdom, on the other, in the areas of the Schengen acquis applicable to Iceland and Norway are governed by an agreement approved by the Council of the European Union on 28 June 1999. 1. Contracting parties may enter into bilateral agreements to second liaison officers from one party to the police services of another contracting party for a specified or unspecified period of time.
4. These aliens may be deported from that party`s territory to their country of origin or to another country in which they may be admitted, including under the relevant provisions of the readmission agreements concluded by the contracting parties. On 14 June 1985, the Federal Republic of Germany, France, Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands signed the Schengen Agreement on the phasing out of controls at their common borders. The agreement is named after the small town of Luxembourg, on the border with France and Germany, where it was signed. 2. Paragraph 1 does not affect the application of the broader provisions of the existing bilateral agreements between the parties.
