WFD Guidance Documents

Guidance documents and technical reports have been produced to assist stakeholders to implement the WFD. Guidance Documents are intended to provide an overall methodological approach, but these will need to be tailored to specific circumstances of each EU Member State.

Below you will find the list of guidance documents which have been published to date. Guidance documents number 1, 3, 4, 6, 7, 9 and 10 have associated policy summaries that give an overview of documents.

All these documents and others produced by the Common Implementation Strategy process can be found on the WFD CIRCABC library
