PDC approach to Access and Release

This chapter considers issues of access and release of data and should be read in conjunction with the Open Data consultation which considers these issues more broadly.

In order to better exploit public data, users – whether businesses or citizens – need to be able to access it. Progress has been made in a number of areas already in terms of developing a Data Set Inventory and using recognised standards.

The Open Data consultation is consulting on an enhanced ‘Right to Data’ which covers many of the issues on access and release and an approach on these issues taken by a PDC will need to reflect any new developments.
