Call upon the ministry for an ambitious implementation of the PSI and Open Data Directive

Today, Open State Foundation sent a letter to the Ministry for the Interior supported by 16 other organisations that support an open and transparent government. In the letter we ask the ministry for an ambitious implementation of the PSI and Open Data Directive, which relates to how public sector information is to be shared and made transparent. 

We offer our expertise in the implementation period, and share three main points that the ministry should take into account when implementing the directive to Dutch law.  You can read the entire letter here (in Dutch)

  1. Make sure the High Value Datasets in articles 13, 14 and Annex I are broadly interpreted;
  2. Ensure clear guidelines for public institutions on how to approach personal data protection and open data;
  3. Ensure clarity in licenses for open data by recommending Creative Commons 0.
