Regulation EE 2019/20, along with the Estonian Public Information Act Section 32(2), is the Estonian implementation of Directive EU 2016/2102. It is very similar to the European legislation, but it additionally does not apply to the following bodies:
- Bodies providing media services.
- Schools and pre-school child care institutions, except for disclosure of general information, including information on admissions, location and contact details.
- Bodies that have a dominant position in the market, have special or exclusive rights or are natural monopolies.
- Sole proprietors, non-profit associations, foundations, and companies that perform public duties with government funds.
Identical to the European legislation.
Throughout all of Estonia, the authority in charge of implementing this regulation is the Estonian Ministry for Entrepreneurship and Information Technology.
