Legal interoperability

We are assuming that services provided through EOSC are by nature cross-border, and that service
providers are aware of existing legislative requirements. This will increase the need for legal
Interoperability and in particular service providers dealing with personal and sensitive data will be required
to have a deep understanding of all legal implications5. We expect services to support and assist users in
following regulations and legislations.

Ensure that legislation is screened by means of
‘interoperability checks’, to identify any barriers to
interoperability. When drafting legislation to
establish a European public service, seek to make it
consistent with relevant legislation, perform a
‘digital check’ and consider data protection
requirements.

Does your service obtain consent from users before
publishing or sharing information about users or
the users application of your service?

Does your service transparently describe and
enforce limitations on users right to access, share,
or make use of users data or business logic
developed by the user? Such limitations may be in
the form of transaction fees when the user
accesses, shares or makes use of data. Limitations
may also be in the form of automated transfer of
intellectual property rights from user to service
owner when user uploads, shares, processes or
transfers data.
