Name of the solution: EIRA Library of Interoperability Specifications

Solution's owner: DG DIGIT, European Commission, Europe

Description: The EIRA Library of Interoperability Specifications is a library containing the standards and specifications defining the interoperability requirements of the architectural building blocks (ABBs) contained in the European Interoperability Reference Architecture (EIRA). The aim of this library is supporting solutions architects when modelling using EIRA.

Type of solution: Common framework

EIRA Library of Interoperability Specifications implements the following:

Principles Interoperability layers
Subsidiarity and proportionality Interoperability governance
Openness Technical interoperability
Reusability  


EIRA Library of Interoperability Specifications implements the following recommendations as explained below:

✅ Recommendation 1  | Principle 1: Subsidiarity and proportionality
The library contains the specifications defining the interoperability requirements of the architectural building blocks (ABBs) contained in the European Interoperability Reference Architecture, which is designed in line with the EIF. Hence, it allows solution architects to select the most relevant specifications for interoperability solutions that are foreseen to be developed at the European or National level whilst ensuring compliance with the EIF. 

✅ Recommendation 4  | Principle 2: Openness
The library, in the spirit of EIRA, contains and encourages public officials to give preference to open specifications. 

✅ Recommendation 6  | Principle 4: Reusability 
The library contains the specifications defining the interoperability requirements of the architectural building blocks (ABBs), which can be reused by public administrations. 

✅ Recommendation 23  | Interoperability layer: Interoperability governance
By using the EIRA library of interoperability specifications, public officials are essentially consulting a solution catalogue. 

✅ Recommendation 33  | Interoperability layer: Technical interoperability
The library contains (open) specifications, hence encouraging the use of open specifications at national, sub-national and local levels.
