This page provides an overview on the state-of-play of transposition and reporting, in the form of a simple scoreboard. The WFD Scoreboard gives a quick overview on the performance of the Member States as regards the legal transposition and the implementation elements of the Water Framework Directive 2000/60/EC (WFD). Note that the information only reflects whether or not a Member State has delivered as required by the reporting obligation. It does not make any judgement on the quality of the report.
For more information on the progress of implementation, please refer to the two implementation reports published by the European Commission in 2007 on the first stages of implementation (transposition, article 3, article 5) and in 2009 on the monitoring networks (article 8).
The deadline for publishing River Basin management Plans (22.12.2009) and the deadline for reporting these plans to the Commission (22.3.2010) have expired !
