Final Report - EAQC-WISE (European Analytical Quality Control in support of the Water Framework Directive via the Water Information System for Europe)

Project ID: 22603
Funded under: FP6-POLICIES

Abstract

The implementation of the European Water Framework Directive (WFD) required comparability of water monitoring data at a European level, along with the application of common approaches within the member states. However, the practice in the sector was dramatically different, since the various decision makers did not share a common point of view.

The EU-funded EAQC-WISE project aimed to change this view and facilitate the establishment of a quality control system related to the WFD application in the European Community.

This final activity report presents the analyses performed, the resultant observations and the proposed recommendations regarding various aspects of the WFD policy. The document also prioritises the recommendations in each sector and refers to further development and exploitation of the project findings.
