The following changes were introduced since the 2015 annual submission:
(R= as follow-up of the review process)

Over-all inventory / all source categories:

  • Included level key sources for base year
  • Add trend description for years before 1990
  • Improve consistency in notation key use

Individual source categories:

  • NFR 3: further improvements as described under chapter recalculations.
  • NFR 1.A.3.b v: Correction of AD for 1994 R (CLRTAP Stage 2)

Planned for future submissions

Possible improvement issues that have been identified so far and will be checked in the future are given below:
