The EU Single Market refers to the European Union as one territory without any internal borders or other regulatory obstacles to the free movement of goods and services and has been defined by the fundamental Four Freedoms. Recently, the Estonian government introduced an important update: the fifth freedom, focused on the free movement of data.
The European Commission launched the Once-Only Principle Project (TOOP) on 1st January 2017. This project is part of the EU eGovernment Action Plan 2016-2020 and will contribute towards increasing the efficiency of the Digital Single Market.
The Once - Only Principle Project (TOOP) is an initiative of 50 organisations from the EU and Associated Countries to explore and demonstrate the once-only principle on a cross-border scale with the aim to reduce the administrative burden of businesses and public administrations.
TOOP has submitted its next deliverable to the European Commission to describe the first version of a generic federated architecture for the implementation of the once-only principle (OOP) in Europe.
The Once-Only Principle Project (TOOP) has submitted its next deliverable “D2.1 Generic Federated OOP Architecture” to the European Commission. This deliverable presents the first version of a generic federated OOP architecture, supporting interconnection and interoperability of national registries at the EU level.
TOOP is pleased to present its first deliverable to the European Commission that is also open for public access!
The Once-Only Principle Project has submitted its first deliverable “D2.6 Position Paper on Definition of OOP and Situation in Europe” to the European Commission. The objective of this position paper is to explain the “once-only” principle (OOP) as it is understood by the partners in the project and to summarise the motivation and ambition behind TOOP.
