An update

EIONET Workshop

Vilnius, 17 to 18 October 2005

terms of reference
Terms of Reference
  • To audit new reporting procedures prior to their use by the Member States;
  • To provide views and experiences on all topics of data exchange, in particular the past reporting cycles for electronically submitted data and reports and propose improvements;
  • To make sure that all comments, concerns and suggestions by the Member States with regard to electronic submissions through Reportnet and DEM tools are shared and properly addressed by the DG ENV, EEA and the ETC/ACC;
  • To support DG ENV and, through DEG ENV, EEA and ETC/ACC in their plans to improve quality and optimize the use of data reported (AIRBASE, emission inventories);
  • To support DG ENV in the field of air quality reporting when developing its policies.
development i
Development I.
  • Thematic Strategy on Air pollution adopted by the Commission
  • Commission proposal of the “Directive on ambient air quality and cleaner air for Europe” presented in the Council on 22nd September
  • Directive includes the revision of reporting as currently under FWD, DDs and EoI
development ii
Development II.
  • DEG is a principal expert group to assist the Commission in drafting the Implementing provisions : decision endorsed by the CAFE Steering group May 2005
the big picture
“The big picture”
  • Is revision of reporting needed?
  • YES.
    • (COM, MS = CAFE SG & EPRG, experts)
  • Reporting
    • WHAT?
    • HOW?
  • Demanded by USERS....
      • COM, EEA&ETC/ACC, WHO, experts, public
  • …proposed by COM…
  • ...accepted by PROVIDERS
      • The Member States
  • Information level maintained
  • Obsolete reporting repealed
  • Identified open issues resolved, future upgrade process established
  • Think SPATIAL, link with other data sources
  • Electronic reporting
  • INSPIRE friendly
  • Streamlined
  • “No reinventing of the wheel”
  • pivotal role of EEA
  • Up to COM, assisted by DEG, to find and propose optimal solution
roadmap i
Roadmap I.
  • AQD in co-decision
  • Implementing provisions through Comitology
  • 0-Draft IP ready by end 2005
  • Adopted after adoption of AQD
    • To be presented to Council WP during procedure
roadmap ii
Roadmap II.
  • Sept 2nd meeting DEG
  • Homework distributed
  • Oct-Nov Electronic exchange + INSPIRE
  • Dec 3rd meeting DEG
  • ? Endorsement provisions on zones
  • End 05 0-Draft prepared/compiled by COM (structure defined)
  • Jan-Mar Iteration I (meeting as/if required) + INSPIRE
  • Apr-Jun Iteration II (-II-) + INSPIRE
  • July 06 Final draft ready
  • ? Adoption
  • (in parallel : existing reporting, EEA on tools, audit as available, possible work on further guidelines)
info handling process i
Info handling process I.
  • EEA with its ETC plays key role
  • Common description of relevant information
  • Subset electronically uploaded to Reportnet/CDR :
    • Zones
      • Name, pollutant, type, delimitation
    • AQ monitoring information
      • raw data + metadata
    • AQ assessment information
      • Principally geo-data on concentrations throughout territory
info handling process ii
Info handling process II.
  • User himself performs relevant assessment (with new, audited tools – Process!)
    • COM looks for exceedances, EEA on State of Env
    • MS to take more advantage of EU-wide assessments
  • Timing & Quality
    • Faster availability on EU scale needed
      • High quality submissions, automated procedures
      • June for AQ monitoring data?
    • QC as close to data generation as possible
    • Maximising use of IT
conclusions deg 30 sept
Conclusions DEG 30 Sept
  • DEG accepts the supporting role in the preparation of the Implementing Provisions.
conclusions deg 30 sept1
Conclusions DEG 30 Sept
  • While there are many important points to consider for the practical implementation, DEG is positive on the proposed approach and can consider it as a starting point in the drafting of the Implementing Provisions.
conclusions deg 30 sept2
Conclusions DEG 30 Sept
  • Four subgroups of the DEG were designated to draft sets of reporting recommendations:
  • Subgroup Electronic reporting, dealing with IT aspects. Members: Sheila Cryan (EEA), Andrej Kobe (EC); possibly Natasa Kovac (SI).
  • Subgroup Zones, dealing with reporting of zone data, in particular zone borders. Members: Andrej Kobe (EC), Dick van den Hout (TNO), EEA involvement.
  • Subgroup Monitoring, revising the provisions on reporting monitoring data (EoI, parts of DD questionnaire). Members: Wolfgang Spangl (AT), Wim Mol (ETC), Andrej Kobe (EC); expected nomination of additional experts from DE, FR, IT.
  • Subgroup Assessment, drawing up provisions for spatial data from e.g. modelling, GIS. Members: Wolf Garber (DE), Dick van den Hout (TNO), Andrej Kobe (EC); Frank de Leeuw (ETC), expected nomination of additional experts from FR, IT.
conclusions deg 30 sept3
Conclusions DEG 30 Sept
  • DEG adopts the roadmap, while noting that timing is very ambitious. The date for the next meeting on December 15 is tentative and will be confirmed.
final thoughts
Final thoughts
  • Important to see the big picture
    • EU-wide AQ information system
      • link to other sources
      • Support for work outside mandatory reporting: local and EU level
    • Spatial dimension of air pollution
      • Concentrations (incl. exceedances of LV)
      • sources
      • abatement
  • Tight schedule for DEG
    • Success only if all parties are working together toward the same vision!
