Identifier observedPropertyDeterminandCode
Short name Determinand
RegistrationStatus Released 28 October 2015
Reference URL
Name Determinand code
Definition Unique code of the determinand monitored, as defined in the codelist.
Methodology for obtaining data This value is required.

Please note that CAS numbers are used where applicable. In the other cases a EEA generated code is used. Prefix "CAS_" is used for the unique codes based on the CAS number, prefix "EEA_" for the EEA codes.

The structure of the EEA code is similar to that of the CAS number:
- The first set of digits identifies the WFD quality element
- The second set of digits is a sequential number
- The last digit is a check digit.

This list is also used in the WFD reporting.
