    2008 study led by MRAG

    report summary

    The ToR for this Study specify three separate tasks:

    1. Collection of information on access rights and restrictions on marine data
    2. Analysis of general legal issues regarding access to data
    3. Analysis of regulatory data provided to the Commission

    the legal regime that regulates access to marine environmental data in Europe as well as the use and re-use of such data is somewhat complex. Deriving from both international law and EC law this regime comprises two separate bodies of law with distinct and indeed sometimes opposing objectives.
