Dear all,

I would like to share this for you as community interesting information:

After the presentation at the INSPIRE Conference 2018 Statistics Denmark took contact to Eurostat to ask for a confirmation that the INSPIRE obligations in regard of data transformation to INSPIRE PD and establishment of INSPIRE View and Download Service will be fulfilled by Eurostat 2021 Census Hub.

Statistics Denmark received a very positive answer from Eurostat: "By using the Census Hub, Member States will fulfil their obligations under INSPIRE in relation to the 1km square grid data from the 2021 Census transmitted under Regulation (EU) 2018/1799." 

For your information: Article 12 (2) in 2018/1799 says: "For the purposes of this Regulation, the programme of the 1 km2 grid data and metadata to be transmitted by Member States and disseminated by Eurostat corresponds to the data that Member States disseminate at national level in accordance with Directive 2007/2/EC and its implementing Regulations (EC) No 1205/2008, (EC) No 976/2009 and (EU) No 1089/2010.", where

No 1205/2008 = Metadata 
No 976/2009 = Network Services
No 1089/2010 = Data Specifications
