Sumario: This article analyzes the reuse of information in the European Union after the implementation of the 2003 Directive. It investigates how the six states with the highest European GDP make such information available to the public on their websites. The aim is to assess how it has affected its implementation in these countries. The methodology consisted, on the one hand, on analyzing the legislation to identify its scope and, secondly, on providing a test of information retrieval to compare search results. In conclusion, it is shown that there is a great disparity in the volume of data offered between states, in the different classification systems, in the deficiencies about the formal description and in the number of results in the retrieval of information. Therefore an advance in the interoperability of data is proposed, with greater control of documentary language.
