Additional information

It contains air quality data delivered annually under 97/101/EC Council Decision establishing a reciprocal exchange of information and data from networks and individual stations measuring ambient air pollution within the Member States ( EoI Decision). The EoI Decision distinguishes between information which must be transmitted in particular relating to the Directive on Air Quality (96/62/EC) and information that must be submitted where it is available. The four annexes in the EoI Decision (list of pollutants, statistical parameters and units of measurement; information concerning networks, stations and measurement techniques; data validation procedure and quality assurance; criteria for the aggregation of data and the calculation of statistical parameters) were amended by Commission Decision 2001/752/EC and its corrigendum. The EEA requests all its member and collaborating countries to provide the information foreseen by the EoI Decision because air pollution is a pan European issue and the EEA produces assessments of air quality, which cover the whole geographical area of Europe.
