Hi, I am academic at Birmingham Law School in the UK. I want to understand how much guidance you produce (numbers of documents, their titles - guidelines, guidance, technical standards etc - and if you have a formal consultation procedure on guidance). The website has 62,000 hits for 'guidance' so I would appreciate a steer/any information. Thanks, Steven

We do not understand your question, and as we are not sure how familiar you are with the EEA’s working remit, we include a brief description of it below.
The EEA aims to support the development and implementation of sound environmental policies in the EU and other EEA member countries by delivering timely, targeted, relevant and reliable information to policy-makers and the public. This is done to assist the European Community in its attempt to improve the environment and move towards sustainability in Europe. The legal basis of the EEA is to be found in the EEA regulation http://www.eea.europa.eu/documents/mandate.html
To accomplish its aim, the EEA collects information through EIONET (the European Environmental Information and Observation Network: http://www.eionet.europa.eu/ ) EIONET is a network of environmental bodies and institutions active in the EEA member countries.
To establish a production chain from monitoring to reporting, and thus transform environmental data from the member countries into effective aggregated information at the European level, a range of different databases has been created. Examples of these are AirBase, WasteBase, Summer Ozone, and European Nature Information System (EUNIS).
Based on the understanding that the public should be ensured easy access to the data and information used in the EEA work programme for periodical reporting, the EEA offers DataService. Since the year 2003, the EEA also offers a Map Service.
All EEA publications are available electronically on the EEA web site free-of-charge. We publish an average of about 40 - 50 publications each year.

Kind regards.
