The deadline to reply to the public consultation on the review of the Public Sector Information (PSI) Directive is approaching: 12 December!
But why is the PSI Directive important? It provides the legal framework for a European market for government-held data (public sector information). The Directive is built around two key pillars of the internal market: transparency and fair competition.
This consultation intends to evaluate the implementation of the PSI Directive and seeks views on how to improve accessibility and re-use of public and publicly funded data. It also considers access to and re-use of private sector data of public interest.
This consultation is divided into three parts:
All interested parties, including governments, public sector data holders and users, commercial and non-commercial re-users, experts and academics as well as citizens are invited to share their views via the dedicated EU consultation portal until 12 December 2017. The consultation is available in all EU languages. Do not hesitate to have your say!
