The Directive 2007/2/EG of the European Parliament and the Council of 14 March 2007 establishing an Infrastructure for Spatial Information in the European Community (INSPIRE) entered into force on 15 May 2007. It forms the legal framework for the transnational and administrative boundary-crossing utilisation of spatial information in Europe. Note: Amendments to Articles 21 and 23 of the INSPIRE Directive entered into force on 06/26/2019.

The Implementing Rules (IR) constitute the basis for the setup of the infrastructure. Implementing Rules have been adopted in the form of a regulation or a decision in the following areas for INSPIRE:

  • Metadata
  • Network Services
  • Interoperability
  • Monitoring and Reporting
  • Data and Service Sharing

Especially the accompanying "Technical Guidance" documents are relevant for the concrete technical realisation of the Implementing Rules. They serve as recommendations and are published on the INSPIRE website.
