 General Context / Link between several actions
 in parallel
  >    A Common Strategy for Implementation
        •   aiming to a Common understanding and approach
        •   Elaboration of guidance on key challenges / exchanges of good practices on
            specific issues / development of legally binding documents

  >    6thFP Research projects in Priority “Scientific Support to Policies”
        •   such as EAQC-WISE (European Analytical Quality Control), SWIFT-WFD
        •   Developing scientific knowledge in direct support to (water) policy needs

  >    Timeframe of the implementation of the WFD
        •   monitoring programme to be operational by the end of 2006
        •   first River Basin Management Plan: 2009 (updates every 6 years)
        •   Programme of measures: 2012, then Follow-up of the efficiency of measures
        •   Environmental objectives to be reached in 2015

QA/QC Commission decision development

  > Necessity
        •   Timing of implementation of WFD to be respected
        •   Implementation of the WFD based on measurement results
       – Need for ensuring data quality and data comparability at EU level
       – Notably with regard to the legal compliance regime
  > QA/QC Commission decision development
        •   Is a cross-cutting document (SW, MW, GW) on criteria regarding the
            performance of analytical methods
        •   will pose the foundation concerning analytical issues to ensure that
            QA/QC principles established under existing standards (ISO17025) will
            be mandatory within the WFD monitoring framework.
        •   Intends to be pragmatic: minimum requirement
        •   has to be available before the start of the WFD monitoring programmes
            (end of 2006)
        •   is a legally-binding text which has to be developed with Member States
            and with support from RTD experts

A Step further….

European Analytical Quality Control in support of the Water
Framework Directive via the Water Information System for Europe

            >   provide the scientific basis for developing and maintaining
                a sustainable pan-EU QA/QC system for water, biota,
                sediment and related soil monitoring data that can be
                deployed in an integrated way at the regional, national and
                European level
            >   to ensure the reliability and comparability of these data
            >   in support of the Water Framework Directive and the future
                EU soil policy related-monitoring programmes
            >   Priority should be given to priority pollutants in the case of
                surface waters, and to pollutants for which groundwater
                threshold values will have to be established under the new
                Groundwater Directive.

EAQC-WISE Objectives
>   In the short-term objective (within the first 6 months of the project)
           – To study different structures & existing QA/QC system at national and EU level
           – To identify gaps and needs for additional research and standardisation
>   In the medium-term (2006-2007)
           – To develop activities to fill in the gaps identified above
           – To derive a recommended approach of a QA/QC system that is likely to work at
             Member State, at river basin and at European scale
           – To assess the impact of such a recommended AQC system.
           – To check the applicability and validity by means of case studies
           – To derive a communication system to efficiently link scientific and policy-making
           – To derive a sustainable dissemination mechanism of reliable training
             appropriate to laboratories engaged in the analysis of matrices associated with
             WFD implementation
>   In the long term (beyond 2008)
           – The establishment of a quality control system, which would coordinate tailor-
              made proficiency testing activities, reference material production, research and
              training at the EU level in support of water and soil policies, with regular
              exchanges of good practices.
