DATA ELEMENT RELATED TO A VOCABULARY

Identifier parameterEmissionsSourceCategory
Short name Source category
RegistrationStatus Released 03 November 2015
Reference URL http://dd.eionet.europa.eu/dataelements/latest/parameterEmissionsSourceCategory
Name Source of point emissions or of diffuse emissions
Definition See the code list values for a definition of each category.
Methodology for obtaining data This is a required value.

The hierarchical structure of the point source categories allows the reporting at the level of disaggregation most compatible with the national inventories.
Categories O1, O2, O3 and O4 were introduced in the point sources category list to allow a better alignment with the Water Framework Directive list of pressures.
Emissions from agglomerations with less than 2000 p.e. (U11 and U21) are requested only if significant (see also category NP3 under diffuse pollution).

Categories NP71, NP72, NP73 and NP74 were introduced in the diffuse sources category list to allow a better alignment with the Water Framework Directive list of pressures. The category NP7 can cover not only the sub-categories NP71 .. NP74, but also emissions from other diffuse sources not included in these sub-categories and missing in the diffuse sources list.
The hierarchical structure of the NP7 category allows the reporting at the level of disaggregation most compatible with the national data.

If the categories NP7 (Other Diffuse Emissions) or O (Other Point Emissions) are used, please describe the emissions source(s) details in the Remarks field.
