PSI Directive Relevance

The INSPIRE Directive complements the PSI Directive in a number of areas within the geographic information sector. How a Member State transposes and implements the INSPIRE Directive can also have competition consequences if the body that oversees and manages the implementation is a public sector information holder that operates on the open market and as such competes with other data providers including data and service providers that incorporate the re-use of public sector information.

The European Commission report shows also confirms that the Commission has referred Poland to Court of with respect to the Re-use of Public Sector Information Directive 2003/98/EC that came into effect in all European Union Member States on the 1st July 2005.
