15 Data bases Questionnaires Reports Monitoring Flow charts Table templatesData filled tables Water and Load balances

16 Questionnaires on Water Quality screened so far (1) Regional/national: Flemish environmental regulation (Vlarem II) EU-Directives on: Drinking water production, Bathing w., Dangerous substances, Fishing w., Shellfish w.; EU-Decision on Fresh w.; (EU-Water Framework Directive)

17 pan-European: –Eurostat Urban Audit II, Water Account Quest. –Eurostat-OECD Regional Env. Quest., Inland Waters Joint Quest. –EEA-EWN Rivers & Lakes –OECD Compendium –OSPAR Riverine Inputs and Direct Discharges worldwide: –UNEP-GEMS/Water (+ ESI) –UN Quest. on Environment Statistics Questionnaires on Water Quality screened so far (2)

18 HARMONISATION Inventory of reporting obligations/ commitments Comparison and integration of demands –> Reporting tables (extended) Rationalisation –> Reporting tables (reduced)

19 Terminology –wording & terms; definitions; descriptions Codification & classification –terms: symbols, abbreviations & acronyms –classifications (+ clusters, subdivisions) –units RATIONALISATION (1)

20 Methodology –approaches, estimations, algorithms –use of standardised methods Template format –flow charts –table structure –explanatory notes, footnotes RATIONALISATION (2)

21 Countries / Member states need: –1 (series of) harmonised guidelines – theoretical background & practical tools – global vs detailed descriptions – simple (cost-effective, time saving) & more complex (= accurate) methods Manuals

22 Data bases Questionnaires Reports Monitoring strategies UN/ECE TFMA Guidelines Monitoring & Assessment Transboundary Rivers GEMS/Water Operational Guide Data Submission OECD/EUROSTAT Data Collection Manual (IWJQ) GEMS/Water Operational Guide Station & Analytical Data Forms EEA Data Dictionary EWN-Rivers, lakes,... EU COM - WFD Reporting Sheets EU COM - WFD WISE GEMS/Water Analytical Methods
