null Statement on government proposal on the draft law on the Provision of Digital Services and changes to the Act on Electronic Services and Communication in the Public Sector

Statement on the draft law on the Provision of Digital Services and the repeal of Section 5, Section 6 and Section 7 subsection 1 of the Act on Electronic Services and Communication in the Public Sector.

CSC supports the draft law on the Provision of Digital Services and the repeal of Section 5, Section 6 and Section 7 subsection 1 of the Act on Electronic Services and Communication in the Public Sector, as the promotion of the availability, quality and information security of digital services is of the utmost importance.

  • The draft law should seek to avoid too detailed definitions that are linked to currently available technology
  • The detailed justifications for the accessibility of digital services in a legislative proposal are clear, but there is a need for clarification, for example, whether the service provider is able to provide identical, inaccessible information content alongside the accessible office program file formats, after the entry into force of the daft law and the transitional period
  • Attention should be paid to the application of the draft law related to teaching activities, as the current draft does not take sufficient account of, for example, virtual distance learning
  • The reform can bring time-based problems for service providers and developers
  • CSC views that the guarantee of accessibility will result to significant modifications to existing services and thus also to the costs
