Reporting on Programmes of Measures (Art. 13) and on exceptions (Art. 14) for the Marine Strategy Framework Directive
A Recommendation on Programmes of measures under MSFD (Recommendations for establishment/implementation and related reporting) was adopted in November 2014. This document provides further draft guidance on the reporting requirements and process, and in particular sets out the details of the reporting sheet. XML schemas and a web form application have been prepared and tested by Member States in the period to end August 2015. Finalisation of the reporting tools and guidance has the following timetable:
- Updating of XML, web form, technical guidance, resource page (based on feedback received from Member States during the test phase) – September
- Finalisation of guidance, tools – DIKE 5-6 October
- Adoption by MSCG – November
This version of the guidance has been updated following comments received by Member States during the test phase. To allow for easy checking of the revisions, these are shown in track changes.
