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.
