Fiche :: Action 89: Member States to make eGovernment services fully interoperable
24 October 2010
Member States should make eGovernment services fully interoperable overcoming organisational, technical or semantic barriers and supporting IPv6.
What is the problem? Interoperability as a foundation for better eGovernment services
Interoperability fosters the delivery of cross-border public services and is an important pre-condition for the open, flexible delivery of eGovernment services to citizens and business.
When establishing national eGovernment services, there is a risk that Member States opt for incompatible solutions and that new electronic barriers emerge.
Why the EU action is required? To align Member States with European frameworks
Member States have declared in the Malmö and Granada Declarations that they will work to align their national interoperability frameworks with applicable European frameworks and develop more effective and efficient interoperable public services.
