To facilitate a feasible implementation that responds to tangible data needs identified in action 2.1, the identified flexibilities in the legal framework would be used to diversify and where possible relax the technical implementation guidance for what is needed for each data set (e.g. every data set needs to have published metadata and should be accessible, a clearly defined and prioritised limited number of data sets need to be harmonized).
The action will work on the following strands of activities:
The action is led by ENV, with contribution by the MIG, MIG-T, European Commission DGs and the EEA. A temporary dedicated sub-group will be established.
Task 1: Identifying the flexibilities of the legal framework, building on previous simplification efforts.
Task 2: Develop implementation maturity levels based on the level of interoperability, data priorities and identified legal flexibility (incl. legal validation).
Task 3: Impact assessment of the proposal on existing and future implementation.
Task 4: Develop good practices to support a common understanding and facilitate a common implementation of the maturity levels. Pilot the proposed maturity levels on selected data sets.
|Task 5: Draft guidance (legal, political, technical) on application of maturity levels.||March 2022|
|Task 6: Gather recommendations for future improvements to the legal framework||March 2021 - September 2022|
