MT supports the proposal for a European Regulation on the collection and sharing of data relating to short-term accommodation rental services

30 December 2022

The Ministry of Tourism has prepared our country’s position on the proposal for a Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council on the collection and sharing of data relating to short-stay accommodation services and amending Regulation (EU) 2018/1724.

The position states that we support the objectives set out in the proposal presented by the European Commission in all these areas. The proposal for a regulation requires public authorities requesting data on short-term rentals to operate registration systems for those providing such rentals, so-called hosts, including by providing a unique registration number for their registration.

These registration systems can be managed at national, regional or local level, but must comply with an EU model which contains procedural and substantive requirements.

Public authorities should also provide a single digital entry point that offers the information platforms and hosts need and allows hosts to register online.

Platforms will be required to display registration numbers and share (via a single digital entry point) a closed data set with public authorities that implement registration schemes. Small platforms and micro-platforms with limited activity will benefit from more relaxed data sharing requirements.
