Action 34 in United Kingdom flag United Kingdom

Member States should have aligned their national interoperability frameworks to the EIF.

Indicator Status Evidence
Do you have a National Interoperability Framework? Yes The UK publishes information to enable interoperability in the Government Service Design Manual, which includes information for example on building services on a shared core (government as a platform), service integration and management, technology architecture, open standards. See: https://www.gov.uk/service-manual https://www.gov.uk/service-manual/technology/government-as-a-platform.html https://www.gov.uk/service-manual/technology/service-integration.html https://www.gov.uk/service-manual/technology/architecture.html https://www.gov.uk/service-manual/making-software/open-standards-and-licensing.html
Have you aligned your national interoperability frameworks with the European Interoperability Framework? Yes The UK’s Open Standards Principles adopt selection criteria for compulsory open standards in the UK government which are based on the European Common Assessment Methodology for Standards and Specifications (CAMSS). Our selection criteria cover security and legal requirements; user and operational needs; context; economic efficiency; interoperability; market support; potential for lock-in; and maturity. The principles state that government bodies must fulfil international obligations and regulations relating to agreed standards for cross-border interoperability.

Does your National Interoperability Framework take into account the European dimension of public service delivery? Yes The Government Service Design Manual includes information on how to focus a service on user needs, this would include all users of a service and may therefore cover European dimensions.
