This paper focus on the complexity of governing a regional EPR system. This is done directing the following research question: what is the role of the regional archetype governance organization, and how does it relate to the other actors in the ongoing infrastructuring process of establishing a regional EPR system? The paper builds on infrastructuring and boundary work theory. Empirically it follows the work of governing a new openEHR based EPR system, and the governance structures connected to the system. Some important issues are the interrelation between the governance organizations, the boundaries between them, and if the archetype governance organization can work as a bridge builder between technical and clinical governance.
