Period of consultation 
Wednesday, 6 April, 2016 - Wednesday, 29 June, 2016 - 00:00 - 00:00
Objective of the consultation 

The general objective is to ensure that a coherent vision on interoperability exists in the EU in relation to interactions between the European public administrations and between them and citizens and businesses. This can be done through updating and extending the European Interoperability Framework (EIF) and updating the European Interoperability Strategy (EIS) by reviewing the current Communication "Towards interoperability for European public services", COM (2010)744.

The review is deemed necessary in order (a) to align with the recent policy development, i.e. the Digital Single Market (DSM) policy, the revised Directive on the reuse of Public Sector Information, etc., (b) to align with emerging technological trends (cloud computing, big and open data, etc.) and (c) to put more focus on the implementation of the EIF rather than the simple alignment with the national approaches on interoperability.

This consultation is part of an overall assessment process for the impact of e EIF revision, described in the Inception Impact Assessment document.
