A derogation/exception is a permit produced by an administration in a EU Member State that allows to deviate from the legal obligation for strict protection of all individuals of certain species, and of the breeding/resting sites of these individuals, as provided in the EU Birds and Habitats Directives. This dashboard presents an overview of the derogations and exceptions that national, regional or local administrations have granted across the EU. It is based on the number of derogations/exceptions that are reported to the EU. Please note that the number of derogations does not reflect the number of individuals affected by the derogations – a single derogation may cover many individuals, or just a single one
