How could the upcoming European travel information and authorization system impact my ability to travel freely to Schengen countries as a Maltese permanent resident?

Recently I heard that Schengen countries are going to introduce a travel information and authorization system. Traveler from countries that have visa-free access to the Schengen area will have to use this system to obtain a pre-clearance before entering Schengen countries. Last year I obtained a resident permit through the RBI program in Malta. Could my ability to travel in the Schengen area be impacted by this?

    A valid Maltese residence permit and a valid national passport allows you to travel to and within the Schengen area. You may stay in all countries in the Schengen area outside of Malta for up to 90 days in any 180-day period.
