Stable rules enable continuous and reliable control of public administration, which acts within a legal framework. Therefore, public administrations’ work requires stability, consistency, precision and unambiguity of legal regulation. [1]

Therefore, the legal standards need to be adjusted because of increased administrative IT penetration.
