National Access Point
(NAP - National Access Point)
The transition to the Single European Transport Area requires the establishment of a system that connects all traffic elements. The development of this digital computer architecture includes open and common standards and user interfaces,
as well as an efficient and secure data ecosystem. In accordance with the commitments under EU Directives (40/2010, 94/2014) and Delegated Regulations (885/2013, 886/2013, 962/2015, 1926/2017), Member States are establishing national
access points – NAPs. Each EU Member State is committed to setting up its own NAP or a joint NAP with one or more other Member States. NAPs can be organized in various forms, as a registry, a database, a data marketplace or a data
The objective of the NAP is to provide service developers, and consequently end-users, with easy access, the exchange and re-use of comprehensive and reliable traffic and travel data, and data on public charging/refuelling infrastructure
for alternative fuels in transport, in a non-discriminatory manner.
