SPOCS - Crossborder Access to eGovernment Services

  • TYPE: Business Case Study DATE: Wednesday, May 05, 2010 TIME: 15:00-16:00 LOCATION: IMAX

SPOCS (Simple Procedures Online for Cross-border Services) is a pilot project launched by the European Commission which aims to improve the existing implementations of the Services Directive in Europe. It will deliver specifications and tools for a version 2.0 of the Points of Single Contact established throughout Europe by the end of 2009.

In order to build interoperable, seamless and smarter cross border services various components that require identity and access management have to be integrated. Some of the questions involved are: how to identify a legal person and bind a user to that person, how to verify electronic documents, how to authorise access to electronic document repositories (eSafes), how to identify a registered user of an electronic delivery service. These questions have to be answered in a cross border context between member states that have heterogeneous systems as well as legal frameworks in place.

SPOCS will make use of the results achieved by its "sister projects" STORK and PEPPOL in relation to mutual recognition for the use of electronic identity, documents and signatures.
