Public Information Access Study

Objective

Each European country maintains large sets of information in the public domain, in the sense that this information is available, on request, to the individual citizen or enterprise. Such information is very often needed to generate private or public contracts and is typically available from both central and local municipality administrations.

The PIA exploratory action studied the accessibility and interchange of this type of public domain information.
Each European country maintains large sets of information in the public domain, in the sense that this information is available, on request, to the individual citizen or enterprize. Such information is very often needed to generate private or public contracts and is typically available from both central and local municipality administrations.

The public information access study (PIA) exploratory action studied the accessibility and interchange of this type of public domain information. The study was limited to a subset of Community countries and focussed on 2 specific areas: the establishment and registration of an individual and the establishment and registration of an enterprise.

The following tasks were carried out:
analysis of the potential use of modern information technology (IT), including user interface, communications and linguistic tools;
establishment of a firm basis for future projects in these areas.

The result of the action was a clearer and more detailed picture of the requirements of these market sectors, the present status of the technology, and areas where improvements are possible.
The study constituted a good basis for various new actions in these areas as well as an input for other related projects.

- establishment and registration of an individual
- establishment and registration of an enterprise.
