EIRA Architecture Building Blocks support the EIF principle of openness and encourages the concept of publication of data as open data. 
EULF Blueprint
The Re3gistry is a source of common reference codes,  hence it enables public administrations to use and reuse open specifications in relation to geospatial domain. 
Generic technical specification for the interoperability of powers and mandates
The common ontology for the representation of powers and mandates enables better and more seamless opening up and sharing of data in this domain.

Phase 2 of the catalogue of data visualisation tools and solutions
Phase 2 of the catalogue of data visualisation tools and solutions

The catalogue is also accompanied by a data visualisation tutorial supporting public organisations staff on their tasks of dealing with data and producing data visualisations for both internal or external purposes. 
Statistical Production Reference Architecture
Statistical Production Reference Architecture V1.0 and subsequent

The ESS Statistical Enterprise Architecture supports the publication of statistical data across Europe in a standardised and common way. 




IMAPS solution v1.2

Question D1 of the Service Delivery section of the IMAPS questionnaire assesses to which extent public administrations publish their open data and the related format. To ensure a level playing field, the opening and reuse of data must be non-discriminatory, meaning that data must be interoperable so that can be found, discovered and processed.
