    • For 20 years there have been initiatives at the European and Global levels to open up these public sector information vaults for re-use by others in society whether that be for commercial gain or otherwise. E.g. the citizen.
    • By 1999 the European Union realised that the voluntary code of sharing public sector information was not delivering. To address this a new law was brought forward which came into being at the European Union level on 31 st December 2003. (Reference Directive 2003/98/EC)
