The Government is consulting on the implementation in the UK of Directive 2013/37/EU on the reuse of data produced and collected by public bodies. The Directive aims to harmonise the rules across the EU around the reuse of public sector information, encouraging an open data approach but with the option for public bodies to charge for reuse. The consultation invites comments on how, in the UK, these charges should be calculated and on the appropriate appeals procedures against adverse public sector decisions on reuse. The consultation closes on 7 October 2014.
