For the purpose of assessing the quality of statistics to be transmitted in the use of information and communication technologies domain, the detailed arrangements for the annual quality reports should be specified.

(3)

To ensure the accurate implementation of a sample survey in the use of information and communication technologies domain, the technical items of the data set should be specified.

(4)

In order to allow the Commission (Eurostat) to retrieve the data by electronic means, data transmission and the submission of the annual quality report should be made through the Single Entry Point.

(5)

For the categories of the characteristics listed in the Annex, Member States and the Union institutions should use, where appropriate, the statistical classifications for the territorial units, education, occupation and economic sector that are compatible with the NUTS (2), ISCED (3), ISCO (4) and NACE (5) classifications.

(6)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the European Statistical System Committee,
