Name National designation type code
Definition This field accumulates codes given in appendix D of the NATURA 2000 Standard Data Form or Emerald Standard Data Form. This code is unique for national designation types in EUNIS.
Methodology for obtaining data Designation code should always be ISO2 character country code + 2 numbers starting with 00 (indicating designation type "No protection status" and ending with 99 indicating "Others")

For countries which have not yet checked the data through the EIONET data flow process, it is still possible to find designation codes as abbreviations (not like described above) that were present in the CDDA before. If such abbreviations are still present in your country database, they should be marked to be deleted if the designation type does not correspond to an existing type in the law or they should be transformed to the coding principles explained above as new entry.

For designations that are not yet present, a new code is to be given following the coding principles in the appendix of the NATURA 2000 and Emerald Standard Data Form (described above).
