The European Commission has adopted the new European Interoperability Framework (EIF) which will help European public administrations to coordinate their digitisation efforts when delivering public services.
The European Interoperability Framework is part of the Communication (COM (2017) 134) from the European Commission adopted on 23 March 2017 and developed under the ISA2 programme. The framework gives specific guidance on how to set up interoperable digital public services.
Published EU framework will help Member States to follow a common approach when making their public services available online, also across countries and policy areas. This will contribute to reducing bureaucracy for people and businesses, for example, when requesting certificates, enrolling to services, or handing in tax declarations. The application of the framework by European public administrations will ensure that their services are standardised, automated, streamlined and provided securely in less time and with less effort.
