Critical Infrastructure Blueprint adopted to strengthen the EU’s capacity to react to cross-border disruptive incidents

Against a blue background we see three bubbles, each portraying different sectors of critical infrastructure. One depicts ports, another space, and the third highways.

On 25 June 2024, the Council adopted a Recommendation for a Critical Infrastructure Blueprint proposed by the Commission in September 2023. This recommendation will enable the EU to respond in a more coordinated way to significant cross-border critical infrastructure incidents that may disrupt essential services in the Internal Market. The Critical Infrastructure Blueprint provides a roadmap with measures that can be applied when EU countries face significant critical infrastructure incidents, in sectors such as energy, transport, banking, financial market infrastructures, health, digital infrastructure, public administration, space, water and food. This will help improve situational awareness, communication and coordination at EU level.

The adoption is part of recent measures taken by the EU to enhance the protection of critical infrastructure and the resilience of critical entities. These measures include the adoption of the Directive on Critical Entities Resilience, the revised Directive on Network and Information Systems (NIS2) and the Council Recommendation to strengthen the resilience of critical infrastructure.
