Should my organization submit a Declaration of Compliance?

For every NAP type your organization registers datasets and/or services on the NAP ITS, it has to submit a Declaration of Compliance. Additionally, some data users need to submit a Declaration of Compliance on the NAP ITS.

Content on the NAP ITS can be grouped into four NAP types, each based on a European Delegated Regulation:

  • Multimodal travel information services (MMTIS; EU 2017/1926)
  • Real time traffic information services (RTTI; EU 2015/962)
  • Safety related traffic information (SRTI; EU 886/2013)
  • Information services for safe and secure truck parkings (SSTP; EU 885/2013)

Each of these Delegated Regulations separately define the actors that need to submit a Declaration of Compliance on the NAP ITS. This information has been summarized for you in the table below:
