General Information

Generic technical specification for the interoperability of powers and mandates

Name of the solution: Generic technical specification for the interoperability of powers and mandates

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

Description: The main objective is to create a shared European data model about representation powers and mandates, which allows powers/mandates information originated in the information systems of one country to be directly processed automatically by the information systems in other country. The data model will be tested in real life through pilots with some MS and the technical specification will be put forward to the CEF eID Operational Management Board for endorsement and proposed to be incorporated in the CEF eID sample implementation and extension of the CEF eID technical specifications.

Type of solution: Semantic assets; Legal interoperability

Generic technical specification for the interoperability of powers and mandates implements the following:

Principles Interoperability layers Conceptual model
Openness ✅ Interoperability governance Open data
Reusability  ✅ Legal Interoperability ✅ Security and privacy
✅ Technological neutrality    
Preservation of information    


Generic technical specification for the interoperability of powers and mandates implements the following recommendations as explained below:

Recommendation 2 | Principle 2: Openness
The common ontology for the representation of powers and mandates enables better and more seamless opening up and sharing of data in this domain. 

Recommendation 3  | Principle 2: Openness
The common ontology for the representation of powers and mandates is fully open source (OSS), hence by using it, public administrations support and promote the use of OSS.

Recommendation 6  | Principle 4: Reusability 
The common ontology and the technical specifications for the representation of powers and mandates enables the sharing and reuse of data in this domain. 

Recommendation 7  | Principle 4: Reusability 
The common ontology and the technical specifications for the representation of powers and mandates enables the sharing and reuse of information in this domain. 

Recommendation 8  | Principle 5: Technological neutrality
The common specifications and the common European data model for the representation of powers and mandates does not impose the use of any software to exchange data. 

Recommendation 9  | Principle 5: Technological neutrality
The common specifications for the representation of powers and mandates helps to ensure data portability. 

Recommendation 18  | Principle 11: Preservation of information
The use of the common specification for the representation of powers and mandates helps to lower the cost of information transfer, due to automated data processing. Hence, it reduces the administrative burden on public administrations. 

Recommendation 22  | Interoperability layer: Interoperability governance
The use of the common specification helps to ensure consistency of legal mandates and power descriptions across European borders.

Recommendation 23  | Interoperability layer: Interoperability governance
By using the technical specifications for legal power and mandates, public officials at national public administrations are using consulting and a European standard, hence helping to ensuring semantic interoperability across borders. 

Recommendation 27  | Interoperability layer: Legal interoperability
The use of a common technical specifications helps to ensure consistency and interoperability between different legislations. 

Recommendation 42  | Conceptual model: Open data
The common and shared European data model for publishing and sharing eMandates across borders helps to ensure the use of common vocabularies for expressing metadata in this domain across the European public administrations. 

Recommendation 44  | Conceptual model: Catalogues
One of the key output of this action is the common and shared European data model for publishing and sharing eMandates across borders.
