OPSI publishes UK Annual Report on Public Sector Information
Michael Wills, Minister of State for Justice, yesterday announced the publication of the United Kingdom Annual Report on the Re-use of Public Sector Information 2009.
The Report tracks the progress that has been made in the UK since the UK implementation of the European Directive on the Re-use of Public Sector Information (PSI) in 2005. It particularly highlights the progress made over the past twelve months. Publication coincides with the European Commission's recent review of the implementation of the Directive.
The European Commission has praised the UK for its commitment to PSI. The UK continues to be seen as an exemplar and leader in PSI across Europe sharing best practice and establishing good working relationships with other member states.
The report can be downloaded as a pdf at opsi.gov.uk/advice/psi-regulations/uk-report-reuse-psi-2009.pdf.
