The reuse of information in the Ministry of Finance
Open data provides you with access to public information resources generated by units of the Ministry for reuse.
The Ministry Open Data initiative is governed by the
Plan of measures to promote the reuse of information of the Ministry of Finance and Public Administrations 2012–2014(PDF approx. 1 MB), applicable to all units of the Department. The public bodies that form part of the Ministry are authorised to develop their own reuse plans, and to generate and make use of their respective web spaces.
The legal framework governing open data is as follows:
- European Legislation:
- National legislation:
- Law 37/2007 of 16 November on the reuse of public sector information.
- Royal Decree-Law 24/2021, of 2 November, on the transposition of European Union directives on covered bonds, cross-border distribution of collective investment undertakings, open data and re-use of public sector information, exercise of copyright and related rights applicable to certain online transmissions and to radio and television broadcasts, temporary exemptions for certain imports and supplies, for consumers and for the promotion of clean and energy-efficient road transport vehicles.
- Law 18/2015, of 9 July, amending Law 37/2007, of 16 November, on the reuse of public sector information.
- Royal Decree 1495/2011 of 24 October, which implements Law 37/2007 of 16 November on the reuse of public sector information, for the public state sector.
- Resolution of 19 February 2013 from the State Secretariat for Public Administrations approving the Technical Interoperability Standard for the Reuse of Information Resources.
Conditions of reuse
The Ministry has opted for the basic method for making the data available, not subject to specific conditions (Article 8.1 of Royal Decree 1495/2011 of 24 October).
The following general conditions shall apply in relation to the use of reusable datasets:
- The content of the information must not be altered.
- The meaning of the information must not be distorted.
- The source of the reused data and documents must be cited.
- The date that the data was last updated must be mentioned, whenever this information is stated in the original source.
- At no time should it be indicated, insinuated or suggested that the Ministry or any of the bodies that comprise it, participate in, sponsor or support the particular reuse of the data.
- No alterations should be made to the metadata on the date the dataset was updated and the conditions of reuse applicable in each case.
In exceptional cases, and with due justification, the methods provided for in Art. 4.1, paragraphs b) and c) of Law 37/2007 of 16 November may be applied to the reuse of certain documents and datasets. These are as follows:
- The reuse of documents made available to the public, subject to the conditions established in standard licences.
- The reuse of documents on request, in accordance with the procedure established in Article 10, incorporating conditions established in a license in these cases.
The conditions for reuse can be consulted in the legal notices of "Datos.gob.es", of the
Portal and of other reuse web spaces offered by the Ministry.
