Background

The objectives of the Network, defined in the Terms of Reference, are to:

  • de-risk implementations, by reducing "first-time" errors;
  • accelerate the lead-time to market for novel services and solutions;
  • provide a platform to regulators and other public authorities to jointly acquire the capabilities and develop the due processes and guidance that are pivotal for such implementations to come into being;
  • reduce red tape by streamlining regulatory and administrative hurdles across borders.
