Adding Location Interoperability to Better Regulation's Assessment of ICT Implications of New Legislation

Robin Smith and Maria Teresa Borzacchiello

(Submission #323)


The European Commission has been simplifying policy-making and reducing administrative burdens under the Better Regulation package. To support this activity for new legislation, the impact assessment policy process is supported with a toolkit. Within this toolkit exists an Assessment of ICT Implications of New Legislation (Tool no. 27). Under the ISA² Programme, this toolkit is being run by DIGIT to screen and provide advice to policy-makers about the potential impacts that their proposals would have from a ICT perspective. This includes promoting the sharing and reuse of solutions and the promotion of ICT building blocks available under CEF Digital.

To extend this process to geospatial data and technologies, the JRC, as part of the European Location Interoperability Solutions for e-Government (ELISE) Action has developed an approach for 'location interoperability' solutions and specific INSPIRE interoperability assets for new policy proposals. The work has been supported by KPMG.

The presentation will outline the approach taken and the key elements that the location interoperability screening activity uses. It will also illustrate how the response to such requests can be shaped using new processes and information being setup under ELISE's Geospatial Knowledge-base Service.
