Since 2003 several documents have been agreed defining the information that Member States should provide the Commission for the purposes of compliance checking under the water framework directive. These cover the following reporting requirements: Article 3 (2004); Article 5 (2005); Article 8 (2007); and Article 13 (2010). Information has already been provided by the Member States for the first three of these reporting requirements and initial compliance assessments completed. Following agreement of the reporting sheets for the river basin management plans (RBMP) (2010 reporting), the reporting sheets for Articles 3 and 5 were reviewed and some changes agreed with the Member States through Working Group D. During this review it was agreed to prepare an overall, consolidated document which would present, in a logical way, all the reporting requirements that had been agreed. This document fulfils that requirement.
