Two-day Plenary Session of the Permanent Committee on Cadastre (PCC) in the European Union

A two-day general meeting of the Permanent Committee on Cadastre (PCC) in the European Union started at Bled today, organised by the Surveying and Mapping Authority of the Republic of Slovenia, which chaired the Committee on behalf of Slovenia during the first half of 2008.

The professional topics on the meeting programme include the archiving of documents in cadastres, interoperability of real estate data and progress in implementing the INSPIRE Directive. The European EULIS project on land, the European Land Information Service, will be presented. European land registers are in the process of linking in order to enable access to data on national land registers through a single portal and thus promote the operation of the cross-border real estate market and real estate transactions within Europe.

The Permanent Committee on Cadastre in the European Union is an official association of national cadastral organisations of the EU Member States. The main objective of the association is to maintain a network of excellence in the cadastral field and thus promote the exchange of expert information, experience and good practices among the members of the association. The Permanent Committee on Cadastre represents a link between EU cadastral organisations and institutions in the area of professional operation.

The majority of activities in the past year were performed in connection with the implementation of the INSPIRE Directive, the first European spatial directive. The adopted INSPIRE Directive introduces obligations imposed on all Member States to establish national data structures offering "one-stop-shop" access to linked data on space, environment and real estate. Data on land, buildings and infrastructure constitute the basic information which must be provided by cadastral and national geodetic institutions.
