The existing regulatory framework and the needs of the private partners raised numerous technical, organizational and legal uncertainties as potential barriers to data sharing. For example, how to ensure that data supplied for road safety purposes is not used for commercial purposes, how to ensure that road safety information is spread as widely as possible and how to avoid ´freeriders´ who use the SRTI data in their own (commercial) interest without contributing to the SRTI ecosystem and improving road safety.

To address these challenges, approaches were developed and agreed for the PoC. The common understanding of PoC members is reflected in this Memorandum of Understanding.
