Remote execution means a service under which the Bank of Estonia, research and development institutions and government agencies can use confidential data for making statistical analyses in a manner which precludes the users’ direct access to confidential data.
In order to use remote execution, the applicant for remote execution shall submit to Statistics Estonia an application. Each user shall sign the confidentiality obligation.
For the producer of official statistics, it is quite a resource-intensive service which can be offered to a limited extent. Enabling remote execution will be denied, if the application is unjustified or the service cannot be offered to the extent desired by the applicant. Statistics Estonia shall assess the justification of the application and decide on allowing remote execution within ten days from the date of receiving the application. The cost of one working hour is 13–18 euros, depending on the complexity of the task.
