Hmm, well should be interesting to see how many INSPIRE compliant services turn up in the next 20 days!! One question James, do you know what we're actually supposed to deliver in these services considering data doesn't have to be in 'INSPIRE format' yet? I just can't find any statement in any of the docs explaining explicitly what the services should contain?

Emne: [Mapserver-inspire] INSPIRE 9 May 2011 deadline for InitialOperating Capability (IOC)

I understand that the 9th May date has never been mentioned on the roadmap, and may be inferred from the statement

The Draft COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) implementing Directive 2007/2/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards the Network Services, Article 4.1 requires that,

"Not later than 18 months after the date of entry into force of this Regulation, Member States shall provide the Discovery and View Services with initial operating capability."

Initial Operating Capability (IOC) is defined in Article 2.1 of the draft regulation as "...the ability of a Network Service to provide full functionality without guaranteeing quality of service in conformity with the rules set out in Annex I to this Regulation or access to the service for all users through the INSPIRE geo-portal;"

In other words, roadmap or no roadmap mention, the requirement still holds.
