Proposal for recasting of the Re Use of Public Service Information (PSI) Directive

July 3, 2018

Following a review and evaluation process, the European Commission adopted a proposal on 25 April 2018 for a revision of the Directive on the re-use of Public Sector Information .  The proposal aims to overcome the barriers, identified in an impact assessment, that are seen as preventing the full re-use of public sector information.   A short note that provides information on the proposed changes and highlights the main points of interest is availabe here.

Amongst other things, the proposals include the inclusion of public utilities and research data under the remit of the Directive.

The text of the proposed directive can be found at  https://eur-lex.europa.eu/resource.html?uri=cellar:4e790e4c-4969-11e8-be1d-01aa75ed71a1.0001.02/DOC_1&format=PDF
