Comparison of Nitrate Reporting Under European Reporting Obligations
ETC/ICM Technical Report 1/2011

Released: 12.05.2011: See the report

Abstract
If member states would like to "report once - use many times", then streamlining of environmental data reporting is needed.

Nitrate concentrations in water are being reported under three reporting obligations: the Nitrate Directive (NiD) reporting, State of Environment (SoE) reporting and Water Framework Directive (WFD) reporting.

In order to develop a proposal for streamlining of these three reporting obligations, the similarities and differences of the three reporting obligations have been compared by ETC/ICM during the last 3 years.

This report summarises the results and main findings and provides recommendations for potential streamlining. It provides a background for further discussions.
