The ‘Dublin III Regulation’ provides that:

  • If Belgium is responsible, the CGRS will examine the application for international protection.
  • If another EU member state is responsible, the IO requests the other member state to take over the application.
  • If the EU member state confirms the transfer but the applicant does not agree, (s)he can lodge an appeal for suspension and annulment with the Council for Alien Law Litigation (CALL).
