HTTP/HTTPS for the INSPIRE registry


Following a policy for all Commission-hosted IT systems, all applications under the INSPIRE domain ( have been migrated to HTTPS. This also meant that all identifiers in the INSPIRE registry changed from HTTP to HTTPS URIs.

Since this change was unintended and may adversely affect external applications relying on the registry, we have now rolled back the registry to HTTP URIs.

The INSPIRE control body will now further discuss the planned move to HTTPS and how this should be handled in the INSPIRE registry. You can follow its discussion on the control body's issue tracker.
