In April 2017, a working group of the Ministry of Transport and Communications of Finland published a closing report (9/2017) regarding their proposals for guidelines on how to implement the NIS Directive. The official government proposal on the implementation of the NIS Directive was given to the parliament on 19 December 2017 and was accepted in the parliament on 10 April 2018. The laws modificating the existing laws (no new law was proposed) came into force on 9 May 2018.
The necessary changes were made to existing sector specific acts. Altogether twelve Finnish acts were modified: the Information Society Code, the Aviation Act, the Railway Act, the Vessel Traffic Service Act, the Act on the Safety and the Supervision of Security Operations of Certain Vessels and Ports Servicing them, the Act on Transport Services, the Electricity Market Act, the Natural Gas Market Act, the Act on the Supervision of Electricity and Gas Markets, the Water Services Act, the Act on the Financial Supervision and the Act on the National Supervisory Authority for Welfare and Health.
