In developing the European Interoperability Framework (EIF), the European Commission aims to provide guidance and recommendations to European public administrations on how to implement and deliver more interoperable and better quality public services. Since reusability is one of the fundamental principles of the EIF, the ‘sharing and reuse’ of IT solutions is a necessary condition for interoperability to apply in practice in a Digital Single Market, where citizens and businesses can seamlessly access public services and undertake activities online, irrespective of their nationality or Member State of residence.

Here, we present the Sharing and Reuse Framework for IT Solutions (SRF) which includes ten generic recommendations on how to reuse, share or jointly develop IT solutions that meet common requirements and, thus, the essential condition for interoperability as mentioned above.

For a quick overview of the Framework, you can check the Introduction section below. If you would like to view a specific recommendation, then click on the appropriate entry in the Recommendations section.
