  • Evaluation of the application of Directive 98/34/EC in the field of information society services. Report from the Commission to the European Parliament and the Council. COM(2003) 69 final

Abstract

Directive 98/34/EC (the "notification" Directive) obliges Member States to notify, at the draft stage, any national provisions containing technical regulations, so that other Member States and the Commission can comment on them. In 1998 the system was extended to include Information Society services.

This report provides an overview of the implementation of the provisions of Directive 98/34/CE in the field of Information Society services, analyses all notifications transmitted between August 1999 and February 2002, and considers some of the issues raised in areas such as electronic signature, electronic commerce, protection of personal data, digital television and decoders and domain names.
