INSPIRE Knowledge Base

Monitoring and Reporting


According to the Commission Decision 2009/442/EC of 5 June 2009 implementing the INSPIRE Directive, EU Member States have to report annually a number of indicators for monitoring the implementation and use of their infrastructures for spatial information. The information provided includes a list of spatial data sets and services belonging to those infrastructures.


According to the same Decision, a report including  information on the coordinating structures, on the use of the infrastructure for spatial information, on data-sharing agreements and on the costs and benefits of implementing the INSPIRE Directive, is prepared and submitted every three years, starting in 2010.

Templates and guidelines have been prepared to help member states in their Monitoring and reporting obligations.

The Monitoring and Reporting archive has all the indicators and reports from the member states and EFTA states.
