EASO’s work on family tracing follows its earlier work on age assessment which FRA also contributed to. According to the Commission Action Plan on Unaccompanied Minors (2010-2014), a common approach to age assessment and family tracing should be followed. This includes the development of best practice guidelines on both issues. EASO is currently concluding the age assessment guidelines it was mandated to develop under the Action Plan.
