For a project I am looking into HCH deposition and wondered what datasets the EEA has on this topic. Can you provide me a list with all datasets containing information about HCH?

Dear M. J. Bartels,

Thank you for contacting the European Environment Agency (EEA).

We have status information on HCH releases under the Water Framework Directive dashboards that can be accessed at[…]amp;:origin=viz_share_link. Data can be filtered and downloaded from there.

There may also be concentration data in surface fresh water and groundwater, available in WISE water quality database at[…]/waterbase-water-quality-2 and there are some emission data in WISE emissions at[…]/waterbase-emissions-7

Extracts of HCH releases and transfers can also be downloaded from the European Pollutant Release and Transfer Register (E-PRTR) at We can also send you the latest extracts by email if you address us a message via

We hope that this may be useful for you.

With kind regards,
EEA Enquiry Service
