ICT technical specifications -
Definitions
Standard
A technical specification, adopted by a recognised standardisation body, for repeated or
continuous application, with which compliance is not compulsory
Technical Specification
A document that prescribes technical requirements to be fulfilled by a product, process,
service or system
ICT Technical Specification
A technical specification in the field of information and communication technologies
◦ Identified ICT Technical Specifications
◦ Can be referenced in public procurement, primarily to enable interoperability between
devices, applications, data repositories, services and networks.
◦ Official status under the EU public procurement legislation: “Common Technical
Specification”
◦ Comply with Regulation No 1025/2012, Annex II
Identification of ICT technical specifications : a lighter procedure than
standardisation CC BY-SA 4.0
Identification of ICT specifications
in Europe
The European Commission has a flexible approach to standardisation
when identifying new ICT technical specifications.
In July 2017, the Research Data Alliance was officially recognised and approved
as an organisation that issues ICT Technical Specifications.
WHY?
The European Commission can identify ICT technical specifications that are not
national, European, or international standards, provided they meet precise
requirements. Once identified and approved, these specifications can then be
referenced in European public procurement. This flexible approach allows the
EU to respond to the fast evolution of technology in ICT. It also helps
encourage competition, promote interoperability and innovation, and facilitate
the provision of cross-border services.

Who is involved in this process?
• The European Multi Stakeholder Platform (MSP) is an expert
advisory group on ICT standardisation.
• It deals with:
• Potential future ICT standardisation needs in support of European
legislation, policies and public procurement;
• Technical specifications for public procurements, developed by global ICT
standards-developing organisations;
• Cooperation between ICT standards-setting organisations;
• The Rolling Plan, which provides a multi-annual overview of the needs for
preliminary or complementary ICT standardisation activities in support of
the EU policy activities
The Multistakeholder platform (MSP) is chaired and coordinated by the European
Commission.

minor extensions to existing local procedures and, in some cases, inference.
 Research Data Repository Interoperability Recommendations: a set of
recommendations to increase the visibility of an approach facilitating research
data repository platform interoperability to a broader audience.
 Data Collections API: this specification defines a generic way to interact with

The Research Data Alliance ICT Technical Specifications

  • 1. CC BY-SA 4.0 WWW.RD-ALLIANCE.ORG - @RESDATALL | @RDA_EUROPE The Research Data Alliance ICT Technical Specifications Contact: enquiries@rd-alliance.org Revised version – 29 May 2019
  • 2. www.rd-alliance.org - @resdatall ICT technical specifications - Definitions Standard A technical specification, adopted by a recognised standardisation body, for repeated or continuous application, with which compliance is not compulsory Technical Specification A document that prescribes technical requirements to be fulfilled by a product, process, service or system ICT Technical Specification A technical specification in the field of information and communication technologies ◦ Identified ICT Technical Specifications ◦ Can be referenced in public procurement, primarily to enable interoperability between devices, applications, data repositories, services and networks. ◦ Official status under the EU public procurement legislation: “Common Technical Specification” ◦ Comply with Regulation No 1025/2012, Annex II Identification of ICT technical specifications : a lighter procedure than standardisation CC BY-SA 4.0
  • 3. Identification of ICT specifications in Europe The European Commission has a flexible approach to standardisation when identifying new ICT technical specifications. In July 2017, the Research Data Alliance was officially recognised and approved as an organisation that issues ICT Technical Specifications. WHY? The European Commission can identify ICT technical specifications that are not national, European, or international standards, provided they meet precise requirements. Once identified and approved, these specifications can then be referenced in European public procurement. This flexible approach allows the EU to respond to the fast evolution of technology in ICT. It also helps encourage competition, promote interoperability and innovation, and facilitate the provision of cross-border services. https://ec.europa.eu/digital-agenda/en/identification-ict-specifications CC BY-SA 4.0
  • 4. Identification Procedure Submission form Annex 2 of Regulation By the Commission or a Member State Form verification Multi Stakeholder Platform (MSP) Secretariat Submission to MSP 4 weeks before discussion 1st discussion .

  • 5. Who is involved in this process? • The European Multi Stakeholder Platform (MSP) is an expert advisory group on ICT standardisation. • It deals with: • Potential future ICT standardisation needs in support of European legislation, policies and public procurement; • Technical specifications for public procurements, developed by global ICT standards-developing organisations; • Cooperation between ICT standards-setting organisations; • The Rolling Plan, which provides a multi-annual overview of the needs for preliminary or complementary ICT standardisation activities in support of the EU policy activities The Multistakeholder platform (MSP) is chaired and coordinated by the European Commission.
