The original CPSV-AP was prepared in the context of Action 2016.29 – Accessing Member State information resources at European level – Catalogue of Services of the European Commission’s Interoperability for European Public Administrations (ISA) programme. The CPSV-AP has been seen as a first step for creating a model for describing public services related to business and life events, to facilitate the set-up of catalogues of services oriented to businesses and citizens.
This document defines an update to the Core Public Service Vocabulary Application Profile version 2.1 (CPSV-AP v2.2). The update finds its motivation in the experience of implementing version 2.1 of the CPSV-AP by different MSs and stakeholders and consequent requests received from them in GitHub or during webinars and the workshop organised in Sofia.
The main updates of this version are:
- The replacement of the class Formal Framework and its properties by Legal Resource from the ELI ontology.
- The addition of property thematic Area and the relationships for the class Public Service.
- The addition of the Concept and Collection classes.
