Commission brings infringement proceedings for non compliance with EU rules on open data and reuse of public sector information

The European Commission has sent a letter of notice, the first formal step in infringement proceedings, against 19 Member States for not having provided information on the transposition of Directive 2019/1024, on open data and the re-use of public sector information.

Such Directive aims to unlock the benefits of data and provide for the reuse of data resources produced by public authorities. The deadline to notify the Commission of the transposition measures was 17 July 2021.

The Member States concerned are Belgium, Bulgaria, Czechia, Spain, Estonia, Croatia, Ireland, Italy, Cyprus, Latvia, Luxembourg, Hungary, the Netherlands, Austria, Romania, Slovenia, Slovakia, Finland and Sweden. These Member States have now two months to respond to the letters, in the absence of which the Commission may continue with the infringement proceedings.
