The eEurope 2005 Action Plan, endorsed by the Seville European Council, set out policy actions to accelerate the development of the Information Society in Europe. In order to monitor progress of the Action Plan, it contained proposals for a benchmarking exercise based on a set of indicators which would be proposed by the Commission and endorsed by the Council. This Communication presents the Commission�s proposals for eEurope 2005 benchmarking indicators in preparation for the Telecommunications Council of 5 December 2002. The Commission invites the Council to endorse the list of indicators.

This document sets out some guiding principles, such as ease of understanding, timeliness, checking procedures and use of sample surveys. In the light of these principles, the Commission proposes 14 policy indicators and 22 supplementary indicators along with their sources and frequency of collection.
