On our new website, you can now find instructions on

  1. the SDG regulation’s requirements for authorities
  2. enabling the use of services across borders
  3. connecting e-services to the OOTS.

SDG Proof of Concept Pilots project completed

The project between the Nordic and Baltic countries ended at the end of June.

The objectives of the project were achieved and the results benefit the participating countries concretely, for example

  • The evidence request service component developed by Finland has been made available to other countries
  • The open-source version of the Swedish preview service component is now also available for use by other countries.

Cooperation has continued since the end of the project. The results of the project were presented at the CBDS Seminar in Copenhagen in November.

Government proposal on the exchange of information between authorities

The Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment is preparing a government proposal on the implementation of the SDG regulation. Its objective is to clarify the division of responsibilities between authorities and their roles when Regulation (EU) 2018/1724 on the Single Digital Gateway fully enters into force. The regulation itself does not require complementary national legislation, but there has been a need for national legislation clarifying the legal position in the preparation of the regulation’s implementation.
