Information for dataproviders

This page helps you to determine whether the legal obligations of the European Delegated Regulations apply to your organization and provides you with the necessary information to proceed with registering your datasets and services. By ‘registering’ we mean making them accessible by creating the possibility to request and obtain data in a digital machine-readable format via the NAP ITS. You do not need to make the datasets directly available at this website.

If your company is active in the mobility sector in Belgium, it should most probably register datasets and services 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 register datasets and services on the NAP ITS:

  • For MMTIS:
    • Transport authority:  any public authority responsible for the traffic management or the planning, control or management of a given transport network or modes of transport, or both, falling within its territorial competence;
