OSEPA Open Source Policy Statement

Portugal publishes open standards catalog - ODF, PDF and several other standards are mandatory

The Portuguese Government has published the National Digital Interoperability Regulation [2], which defines the list of open standards to be adopted in the Portuguese public administration. This framework brings to life the existing Law of Open Standards [1]. It is part of the larger ICT reform program that aims to save 500M EUR/year while providing stimulus to the local economy.
