National Access Points

National Access Points

Moving towards a Single European Transport Area requires a digital layer interlinking all of the elements of transport. Building up this Digital Architecture involves open and common standards and interfaces and an efficient, but secure data ecosystem.

This is why Member States are setting up their National Access Points; to facilitate access, easy exchange and reuse of transport related data, in order to help support the provision of EU-wide interoperable travel and traffic services to end users.

The list of the National Access Points aims to facilitate establishing the links between those intending to be involved in research, it the development or in the provision of such services.

The list shows the state of the art deployment of the National Access Points across Europe, within the scope of the implementation of the delegated acts adopted under Directive 2010/40/EU:

  • Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 885/2013 supplementing Directive 2010/40/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council with regard to the provision of information services for safe and secure parking places for trucks and commercial vehicles;
  • Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 886/2013 supplementing Directive 2010/40/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council with regard to data and procedures for the provision, where possible, of road safety-related minimum universal traffic information free of charge to users;
  • Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 962/2015 supplementing Directive 2010/40/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council with regard to the provision of EU-wide real-time traffic information services;
  • Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2017/1926 supplementing Directive 2010/40/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council with regard to the provision of EU-wide Multimodal Travel Information Services.

The National Access Points can take various forms, such as a database, data warehouse, data marketplace, repository, and register, web portal or similar depending on the type of data concerned and provide discovery services, making it easier to fuse, crunch or analyse the requested data sets.

For these purposes, data is accessible on a non-discriminatory basis, in accordance with the necessary standards for exchange and reuse.
