BWD specific documents and data

Identification of Bathing Waters (dataflow 788)

The reporting of identified bathing waters to the Commission before the start of the bathing season (Art. 13.2) is used as the spatial dataset at the same time. It is the basis for subsequent monitoring data, therefore the list of identified bathing waters (obligation 788) should be reported before delivering the monitoring data (obligation 787). The list needs to be reported only once and will be used for any subsequent season as the official list under Art. 13.2 unless changes occur. These include identifying a new bathing water, delisting the existing one, or changing the attributes (name, location point coordinates, etc.). Only in such case, a new list should be delivered before the start of the bathing season.

Reporting guidance for Identification of Bathing Waters to Reportnet 3 is being prepared.

Monitoring and Classification of Bathing Waters (dataflow 787)

The monitoring results, bathing water quality classification, bathing season period and other management periods (such as short-term pollution, abnormal situation, and inaccessibility) should be reported in accordance to the model described in the Data Dictionary.

All data deliveries should be made in Reportnet3. Data deliveries in Reportnet 2 (CDR) are no longer possible.
