Blockchain audit trail for environmental permits

Tien Truong and Pascal Dussart

(Submission #357)


In this proof of concept we seek to build a decentralized and inmutable audit trail for environment permits in Flanders via Blockchain. This blockchain audit trail gives more transparancy to citizens and enterprises. It is also a source of truth to determine which actions (change, view etc) has been taken by a government or other organization in a certain permit. The citizens can check the authenticity of this trail via the blockchain and gain more insight which action the administration took in a certain case. The department gets an inmutable record of the handeling of sensitive and privacy related data and tries to conform via this way even more to the GDPR regulations.
