- use 'euRBDCode' in the field spatialUnitIdentifierScheme.

For spatial units not reported under the Water Framework Directive:
- use the unique EIONET code of the spatial unit;
- use 'eionetSubUnitCode' or 'eionetRBDCode', as applicable, in the field spatialUnitIdentifierScheme.
Note that the geometry and characteristics of the spatial unit should then be reported under the "WISE - Spatial Data (WISE-5)" data flow.

If the spatial unit is the country:
