EURIM Terms of Reference - Definition, Aims & Objectives

Definition

EURIM brings together politicians, officials and industry to help improve the quality of policy formation, consultation, scrutiny, implementation and monitoring in support of the creation of a globally competitive, socially inclusive and democratically accountable information society. It works across all boundaries to help set the agenda, stage constructive debate and report on progress.

EURIM Aims

  • Set the political agenda on issues of concern to the users (50% + of society) and suppliers (10% + of the workforce) of ICT products and services.

  • Provide members with clear, accurate and timely information on ICT-related policy proposals, the state of debate, the degree of support or opposition to such proposals, and to concerns over their implementation.

  • Ensure user and supplier member views and concerns are rapidly and effectively communicated to Ministers, Commissioners, Officials and Parliamentarians in London and Brussels.

  • Ensure that rapid and effective action follows, where appropriate.

EURIM Objectives

EURIM's objective is to influence the legislative process, not just via high-level contact, but by working with those responsible for drafting policy, particularly where this cuts across organisational boundaries. EURIM produces policy studies, meets with Government and officials and circulates consultation material as part of the pre-legislative process. EURIM reports through joint workshops and meetings and presents evidence to Select Committees. EURIM provides written responses to consultation exercises and publishes status reports, briefings, position papers and guides.

EURIM’s Achievements

  • EURIM is helping identify and remove barriers to the use of ICT to deliver better public services when, where and how the public wishes.

  • EURIM is helping set the agenda on guidance, governance and accountability with regard to personal identity, data sharing and retention and other regulatory and law enforcement powers.

  • EURIM is helping set the agenda on the need for non-geographic co-operation between governments and industry in the fight against computer-assisted crime.

  • EURIM is helping set new standards for pre-legislative scrutiny, as with its work on the legislation to create Ofcom.

  • EURIM helped set the agenda for the regulatory convergence of communications and content.

  • EURIM works with and through others, wherever possible, to cut across political, departmental and interest group silos and achieve results.

  • EURIM confers competitive advantage on its members by keeping them abreast of developments and providing opportunities for influence before policies acquire momentum.
