The overall objective of this study is to obtain ‘an overview of all existing and planned EU legislation in the digital field, together with an assessment of the interactions amongst these pieces of (draft) legislation’. To achieve this objective this study produced three main outputs. First, a systematic overview of existing and upcoming digital regulations and directives by vertical policy domains was produced. Second, the interplay between the main and more important legislative acts and their coherence was analysed and systematised. Third, regulatory gaps were identified and placed into a taxonomy comprising three categories: a) identified in a Commission’s document and already addressed under an upcoming or programmed legislative work; b) identified in a Commission’s document, but not yet addressed under an already and upcoming or programmed legislative work; c) never addressed so far.
