The European parliament and governments have finalised legislation to create an EU-wide information infrastructure to share spatial data for use in environment, transport and energy policy-making (EED 26/07/04). Representatives met in a conciliation committee on Tuesday night to resolve outstanding disagreements. The parliament said it had won a guarantee that the law will not undermine EU implementation of the UN-brokered Århus green democracy convention, and a reduction in charges to be levied for access to Inspire information.
