Netherlands Mid-Term Report 2016-2018 – For Public Comment
In 2018, the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) published the Year 1 Progress Report for The Netherlands’ second action plan. The report covers the implementation of the action plan from January 2016 through September 2017.
Fiindings from the IRM researcher Caroline Raat, are summarized below:
“The second action plan primarily includes commitments on open data. While more than half of commitments were substantially completed, they were not sufficiently ambitious. Moving forward, the next action plan needs to address several stakeholder priorities, such as the new Freedom of Information Act and transparency of company beneficial ownership.”
And in Dutch:
“Het tweede Nederlandse actieplan bevat vooral actiepunten over open data. Hoewel meer dan de helft van actiepunten substantieel was voltooid, waren ze niet ambitieus genoeg. Voor de toekomst moeten in het volgende actieplan de prioriteiten van belanghebbenden worden opgepakt, zoals de Woo en UBO-transparantie.”
At this time, the public is invited to provide comments on the report. The two-week public comment period closed Tuesday, 8 May 2018.
