25 25 Libor Černikovský: EU Air Quality Reporting Requirements Workshop on Air Quality for West Balkan countries, Prague, Czech Republic, November 2008 Monitoring objective = usable data The measured data must allow an objective and quantitative assessment of AQ, whether it complies with relevant national and European standards, limit values, guidelines and other rules. All tools used for AQ data acquisition, processing and evaluation has to generate data which is acceptable by the national authority, European Commission and European Environmental Agency in terms of quantity, quality and format in which is data stored, presented and transmitted.  QA/AC plans
