According to the site ZDNet, The new system will collect identification information for more than 35 million EU citizens and non-EU citizens, including passport numbers and birth dates.

Additional changes will allow security officials to compare fingerprints and other biometric information from multiple databases, and to determine whether an individual is registered under multiple identities in different databases.

The newspaper Politico reported that the central database will grant officials access to the identity of a person with a single fingerprint examination.

The European Parliament says the giant database will make the EU information systems used in managing security, borders and migration interoperable, allowing data exchange between systems. In other words, it will be easier for officials to access a collection of non-contact information about the identities of people.
