This time last year OPSI produced a report marking the first two years of operation of the UK regime for public sector information (PSI) and tracking progress made to date. As with the first report, OPSI’s aim was to ensure that the legislation that underpinned the various UK tools and initiatives to deliver PSI services ’is recognised, understood and put into practice’. The Report highlights the key milestones and tracks the progress made by OPSI and the UK government over the past year.
The UK publishes its official response to the EC’s questionnaire on the Review of the PSI Directive. The UK Report on the Re-use of PSI 2008 has informed the UK’s response to the EC’s review.
Her Majesty’s Stationery Office (HMSO) continues to exist and fulfill its core activities including responsibility for the publication of legislation and the management of Crown copyright operating from within OPSI. For more information on OPSI and HMSO please see the Related Pages menu.
