The European Commission, DG XI, intends to conclude a study contract in the area of water pollution and water quality. The study (reference XI.D1/95/1133) concerns the development of technical specifications for the evaluation of sources of pollution and other unfavourable anthropogenic effects on Community surface waters.

This study will examine existing pollutant registers within the EC and third countries. It will evaluate how the existing registers meet the requirements of the Directive and will mention the recommendations for the technical specifications required under Article 4.1. It will also estimate the resource implications or recommended specifications.
