  • It is evident from the first phase - November 2003 to May 2009 when the European Commission published the Communication; of implementing the European Union Public Sector Information re-use Directive 2003/98/EC that Europe still is not maximising the return from the investment in public sector information.
  • One of the reasons for this is the low level of awareness on both sides of the supply-demand interface related to PSI re-use.
  • The structure of the PSI re-use sector provides us with the clues as to how to tackle the awareness issue.
  • The evidence accumulated so far shows that there are good practices that EU Member States can adopt to address this issue and one of the keys to unlocking the public sector information is leadership at the Member State level.

  • PSI Leadership – The role of Member States. Ponente: Chris Corbin - PSI Platform

    1. 1. PSI Leadership – The role of Member States Chris Corbin Independent researcher on Information Policy 3 rd APORTA meeting, Madrid, 9 th June 2009 THE RE-USE OF PUBLIC SECTOR INFORMATION IN EUROPE
    2. 2. www.epsiplatform.com After 5.5 years of activity of implementing the EU PSI Re-use Directive 2003/98/EC (November 2003 to May 2009) Europe is still under achieving with respect to Re-using Public Sector Information! (whether that be for profit or not for profit) SO WHAT CAN WE ALL DO TO TURN THIS AROUND? (June 2009 to June 2012) PSI Leadership – The role of Member States
    3. 3. One of the reasons given as to why the opportunity offered by the PSI Re-use framework has not been maximised is lack of awareness. So let us consider how this can be addressed and what the role of the Member States should be in this context! (Based on the accumulated knowledge gained so far in implementing the PSI Re-use Directive) This issue is not unique to the PSI Re-use Directive 2003/98/EC The same issue applies to other data & information related Directives such as: the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC The recent European Conference 20 May 2009 titled: “ Personal data – more use, more protection?” So what good practices can we pick from the Data Protection domain? The presentation made by the Slovenian Information Commissioner “ Public Awareness and Data Protection” www.epsiplatform.com PSI Leadership – The role of Member States
    4. 4. www.epsiplatform.com PSI Leadership – The role of Member States Public Sector PSI Re-users The Actors Their role To facilitate the opportunity To grasp the opportunity and to innovate Supply side Demand side A large number of public bodies Many are large A large number of employees But They are quantifiable And many are similar A very large number of PSI re-users Many are micro or small But They are not quantifiable And they are not similar What do we Know about Each side? So what is the Solution? To focus on the Supply side as it is a known entity over the next 3 years To pull through by example It is too early to focus on the demand side!
    5. 5. EU & EFTA Member State approaches to PSI re-use implementation. <ul><li>To transpose the Directive and leave it to develop naturally with the demand side providing the awareness raising! (The minnow pulling the whale!) (Many Member States have adopted this approach) The evidence shows this is not delivering – PSI re-use growth is stagnant - so the wrong approach! The missed opportunity approach! </li></ul>www.epsiplatform.com <ul><li>To transpose the Directive with one strong independent Regulator where the regulator is providing the awareness raising albeit supported by a Ministry. Slovenia is an example. The evidence shows this focuses the minds but does not maximise the facilitation on the supply side. Demand side is still involved in awareness raising albeit using the Regulator! </li></ul>PSI Leadership – The role of Member States Supply side Demand side Public Sector PSI Re-users Supply side Demand side Public Sector PSI Re-users Regulator (Information Commissioner) Privacy, Access, Re-use
    6. 6. EU & EFTA Member State approaches to implementation. www.epsiplatform.com <ul><li>To appoint one public sector body reporting to a Minister with an over arching policy role that has sole leadership for the implementation of the re-use framework for the whole of the public sector. The body may also - handle complaints, provide a tool kit to minimise the implementation costs on public sector bodies, takes pro-active action to educate and raise awareness, take stimulating actions and engage with the demand side to mention a few of the actions such a lead body has taken. </li></ul><ul><li>The UK is the clearest example. The evidence shows this approach has had the most success in driving the re-use framework forward and raising the awareness – the weakness is that this example does not have the strong regulatory powers that the Slovenian approach has. So all the indicators point towards a hybrid of approach 2 & 3 </li></ul>The annual UK running cost of the above is in the region of €1.3 million per annum This is equivalent to the combined (supply & demand sides) costs of one PSI Re-use Court case. PSI Leadership – The role of Member States Supply side Demand side Public Sector PSI Re-users A single lead body – oversees Information policy, handles complaints amongst other activities
    7. 7. So the evidence so far indicates that the ideal solution is as shown www.epsiplatform.com If all Member States adopted the above approach there are spin off benefits at the pan European level PSI Leadership – The role of Member States Supply side Demand side Public Sector PSI Re-users A single lead body – policy lead - oversees Information policy, handles complaints amongst other activities An active national PSI information Portal Regulators Information Commissioner & Competition Regulator (a member of the ECN) (The Regulators have powers of enforcement on both the supply and demand sides)
    8. 8. Pan European benefits – a European PSI Re-use portal www.epsiplatform.com The evidence shows that within the EU27 Member States the above is partly built. Dynamic portals on PSI Re-use : The Commission, and Member States Belgium, France, Slovenia, Spain, UK Static portals on PSI Re-use : Austria, Germany, Ireland To mention just a few that are active and present to some degree. The Commission funded European PSI Platform is active and present. The above is similar to the European Competition Network The above is similar to the European Network of National Data Protection Commissioners There are similarities with the requirement within the INSPIRE Directive 2007/2/EC that came into force in all EU27 Member States on 15 th May 2009! PSI Leadership – The role of Member States Member State 1 PSI information Portal Member State 27 PSI information Portal Member States 2 to 26 European PSI information Portal
    9. 9. Pan European benefits – enhances the Family of European Network of Regulators www.epsiplatform.com PSI Leadership – The role of Member States The European PSI Re-use Network (NEEDED NOW!) The European Competition Network The European Information Commissioner Network The European INSPIRE Coordinators Network (In future)
    10. 10. How does the Demand side fit into this model? www.epsiplatform.com PSI Leadership – The role of Member States Over the period 2009 to 2012 Demand Side PSI Associations should be encouraged to form at Member State level In order to help support the demand side stakeholders Supply side Demand side Public Sector PSI Re-users A single lead body –policy lead - oversees Information policy, handles complaints amongst other activities An active national PSI information Portal Regulators Information Commissioner & Competition Regulator (a member of the ECN) (The Regulators have powers of enforcement on both the supply and demand sides) Demand Side PSI Associations & Thematic Associations Demand side PSI information portals
    11. 11. The European target model by 1 st July 2012! www.epsiplatform.com PSI Leadership – The role of Member States Fine: So how do we reach this ideal model? Supply side Demand side Public Sector PSI Re-users A European Network of 31 Lead PSI bodies An active European PSI information Portal Family of Regulators For example: The European Competition Network (The Regulators have powers of enforcement on both the supply and demand sides) Pan European PSI Associations & Thematic Associations Demand side PSI information portals
    12. 12. <ul><li>The way forward! </li></ul><ul><li>To adopt the best practice that has already appeared and is demonstrating the potential – the evidence points at the UK as a model to adopt and adapt. </li></ul><ul><li>For a small number of Member States over the period 2009-2010 to adopt a consistent model. The Member States in the frame are those that have acted proactively and are expressing interest: Belgium, France, and Spain. </li></ul><ul><li>As part of the process a Guide as how to implement the model is compiled and published. Liaison with the OECD would be beneficial as there is interest in this outside of Europe. </li></ul><ul><li>If the above could be completed by the end of 2010 then the pull through effect will come into play with other Member States! </li></ul><ul><li>How should this be achieved – best at inter Member State level using one or more facilitators with European Commission and OECD support. </li></ul>www.epsiplatform.com PSI Leadership – The role of Member States
    13. 13. Let us collectively build on today and agree a set of actions that would move Europe towards constructing the ideal model by 1 st July 2012 and as a result Maximising the opportunity offered by the PSI Re-use Directive The objective is to turn a negative message into a positive message then the cascade effect will kick in! www.epsiplatform.com PSI Leadership – The role of Member States
