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 will need to be tailored to the specific circumstances of each EU Member State.

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

All these documents and other results of the work under the Common Implementation Strategy, for instance key events and additional resource documents related to different aspects of the implementation process, can be found in the WFD CIRCABC library.
