Assessment of the ICT implications of new EU legislation

Nowadays almost all implementation of new EU legislation requires the support of IT systems, e.g. for the exchange of information between authorities across borders or for the delivery of online public services to citizens. Consideration of ICT implications early in the drafting procedure will ensure a timely implementation of legislation and offers the possibility of reusing and adapting existing solutions as much as possible.

Action 3.1

    • "We will promote e-government, to help to modernise public administrations and to achieve interoperable public services between Member States."

      Vice-President Andrus Ansip
      Press conference on the adoption of the Digital Single Market Strategy, Brussels, 6 May 2015
    • "Promote e-society: Citizens and businesses should benefit from e-government, e-modernisation, e-solutions and e-services that are interlinked across the EU, and have the skills to operate in an e-society. Also, public administration should embrace digital to provide better services to citizens and companies, reduce administrative burden and enable interoperability and cross-border cooperation."
