Directive on Open Data and the Re-use of Public Sector Information

The Regulations on the Re-Use of Public Sector Information (PSI) 2005 S.I. No. 279 of 2005 implemented the EU Directive on the Re-Use of Public Sector Information 2003/98/EC, which sees public sector information as an increasingly important primary material for digital content, products and services. The Directive encourages all EU Member States to promote the use and re-use of public sector information.

On 25 April 2018 the European Commission adopted a proposal for a revision of the PSI Directive (Directive 2013/37/EU), which was presented as part of a package of measures aiming to facilitate the creation of a common data space in the EU. The new Directive (Directive (EU) 2019/1024) revises the rules originally introduced by the PSI Directive. In addition, the revised Directive addresses some remaining barriers to the re-use of publicly funded information across the EU and brings the legislative framework up to date with advances in digital technologies.

The NDA complies with these Regulations and we encourage the re-use of the information we produce and maintain subject to the conditions set out below.
