  5. 5. About the Services Directive <ul><li>The implementation of the Services Directive concerns a large variety of economic activities (about 40% of EU GDP), requires important legislative changes in all Member States and the undertaking of a number of ambitious projects, such as the setting up of the &quot;Points of Single Contact&quot;. </li></ul><ul><li>The three year implementation period ended on 28 December 2009. </li></ul><ul><li>WHERE DO THINGS STAND? </li></ul><ul><li>20 Member States have by now adopted their horizontal legislation. </li></ul><ul><li>There are now 12 Member States who have indicated to the Commission that they have completed their changes in sector specific legislation. </li></ul><ul><li>A solid basis of PSCs -a so-called &quot;first generation&quot; of PSCs- now appears to be in place in 22 Member States. 14 appear to allow for the actual online completion of procedures, to varying degrees, while the remaining 8 PSCs seem to be limited to the provision of information. </li></ul><ul><li>At the end of April 2010, more than 4600 authorities were registered in the IMI system to deal with issues relating to the Services Directive. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Formal compliance but room for improvements <ul><li>Hypothesis: Most implementations of the SD are minimalistic with focus on administration not on businesses </li></ul><ul><li>Heterogeneous national systems per member state </li></ul><ul><li>No way using national services in connection with services abroad </li></ul><ul><li>Barriers using eServices of other member states </li></ul><ul><li>High information and learning costs for businesses remain </li></ul><ul><ul><li>S imple P rocedures O nline for C ross border S ervices (SPOCS) has started to help improve the situation </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. A brief recap: What will SPOCS do? <ul><li>The objective is to build on MSs’ activities having implemented Art. 8 and other appropriate articles of the Services Directive 2006/123/EC. </li></ul><ul><li>The aim to provide complementary key interoperable building blocks </li></ul>The challenge? Removing borders in a digital era!
  8. 8. Digital natives / governors convergence Doing business in Europe….
  9. 9. But that has all changed now! Or has it?
  10. 10. SPOCS will help realise the Next Generation PSC!!
  11. 11. Where we started at….
  12. 12. What we aim to accomplish together…
  13. 13. The Services Directive today without SD <ul><li>(Hopefully) Compliance with the SD but still,… </li></ul><ul><ul><li>heterogeneous national systems </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>No way using home infrastructures connected to services abroad </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>barriers using eServices </li></ul></ul>with SD Interoperable Services
  14. 14. How to achieve this? Integration? Interoperability! No, but…
  15. 15. Why is SPOCS important for you? <ul><li>Cut red-tape, increase transparency for undertakings and service recipients, and streamline electronic procedures </li></ul><ul><li>Administrative simplification and modernisation will enable you to save money and use your resources more efficiently </li></ul><ul><li>Improve efficiency of cross border cooperation between Member States -Foster pan EU cooperation </li></ul><ul><li>Increase cross border activities </li></ul><ul><li>Less misuse/ fraud </li></ul><ul><li>Improve usability and attractiveness of PSC’s </li></ul><ul><li>Foster competitiveness </li></ul><ul><li>Achieve interoperability </li></ul>
  16. 16. The SPOCS big picture
  17. 17. SPOCS draft specifications (1) <ul><li>Contents syndication, multilingual issues and glossary (WP1) </li></ul><ul><li>Deliverable D1.3 contains the technical specifications, standards and recommendations to be used for content syndication within SPOCS. It will also contain the architecture description of the SPOCS syndication modules. </li></ul><ul><li>eDocuments (WP2) </li></ul><ul><li>Deliverable D2.2 gives a multi-layered interoperability concept for cross-border exchange of electronic documents. Although the concept focuses on the use-cases required by the SPOCS pilot scenarios it aims to serve a multipurpose format for any kind of information exchange on the basis of electronic documents. The document container concept introduced in this specification is called Omnifarious Container for e-Documents (OCD). </li></ul><ul><li>Interoperable delivery, eSafe, secure and interoperable exchanges and acknowledgement of receipt (WP3) </li></ul><ul><li>Deliverable D3.2 describes specifications for the interoperability layer to connect existing eDelivery and eSafe solutions based on a common eSecuriity architecture. Based on the specifications open modules will be developed. </li></ul>
  18. 18. SPOCS draft specifications (2) <ul><li>Interoperable eService Directories (WP4) </li></ul><ul><li>Deliverable D4.3 describes specifications for the access to eService directories and the exchange of information about eServices. It also includes an architectural approach for the SPOCS interoperability level regarding eService directories. Based on the specifications the guidelines and governance schemes as well as the open modules will be developed. </li></ul><ul><li>Experimenting with Professions (WP5) </li></ul><ul><li>Deliverable D5.2 includes the SPOCS reference process model, the functional requirements for the WP1, WP2, WP3, WP4, the specific piloting country functional requirements as well as the material collected for the specific piloting profession(s) per piloting country that is the followed process, the templates of the required documents, the application and the permission. </li></ul>
  19. 19. The SPOCS methodology <ul><li>SPOCS will build upon existing solutions addressing notably: </li></ul><ul><li>Identification and authentication </li></ul><ul><li>Examination and validation of supporting documents </li></ul><ul><li>Harmonisation of data </li></ul><ul><li>Security and tracking data exchanges between EU administrations </li></ul><ul><li>Extend the solution provided by STORK (Secure idenTity acrOss boRders linked): The aim of the project is to establish a European eID Interoperability Platform that will allow citizens to establish new e-relations across borders, just by presenting their national eID. </li></ul>
