Germany and Italy’s interior ministers sent a letter to the European Commission calling for a European Union-wide refugee registration system, a German newspaper reported.
The letter also includes a request over the agreement of a selection process and the rights for refugees, the newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung said.
Interior ministers from both countries said that the EU's Asylum Support Office (EASO) should increase its personnel capacity and funds so it could turn into a "real European asylum agency."
Both countries called for an "ambitious reform" of the Dublin rules - which force refugees to demand asylum in the first EU country they reach - by means of a "newly adjusted Common European Asylum System."
In the letter to the European Commission First Vice President Frans Timmermans and EU Migration Commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos, the interior ministers stated that an EU-wide registration mechanism that involves security controls should be established under favour of the EU border agency Frontex.
They offered identifying refugees in need of protection in their home countries or transit countries, before they arrived Europe - the attempt is currently being maintained in the EU's collaboration with Turkey - and added the target was to generate an "institutionalised relocation system in the EU."
On Thursday, Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu and European Union Council President Donald Tusk have declared that they have reached an agreement to take strong measures in order to prevent refugee flow into Europe.
Meanwhile, eight EU countries now have temporary, emergency border controls to manage the influx of refugees.
More than 1.2 million people requested asylum in the 28-nation EU last year, including 363,000 Syrians and 178,000 Afghans, the EU statistics agency Eurostat said.
