Reportnet 3.0

Our approach to develop the modernised e-Reporting system for streamlining environmental reporting

In 2018, the EEA has initiated Reportnet 3.0 project to promote and modernise eReporting with the latest IT solutions. This modern reporting infrastructure will stepwise integrate data flows under the EU environmental legislation, take into account national capabilities and provide a platform that supports new types of data (e.g. Copernicus, citizen science) and data from an extended group of stakeholders. To achieve this initiative, the EEA is working closely with the nominated experts from the EEA Member Countries and the Commission Services (DG ENV, DG CLIMA, DG ENER and JRC).

Reportnet 3.0 will act as a central hub through which all e-Reporting activities handled by the EEA with Eionet and other partners will be performed.

The system stepwise replaces the current Reportnet system and is foreseen as a one-stop-shop for all involved stakeholders. It will effectively address the issues faced by the reporters so far and employ modern approaches in software development (i.e. with regards to security, scalability, architecture, interoperability, etc.). Reportnet 3.0 will be designed to work seamlessly across organisations and supports existing legal obligations (e.g. INSPIRE) and standards to assure the reuse and interoperability of data.

The Reportnet 3.0 project was initiated in 2018 to be finalised at the end of 2020.

Reportnet 3 platform

The first version of the operational Reportnet 3 platform is launched as of 31/07/2020 like scheduled: By this release, legally sound delivery of an alphanumeric dataset will be possible through Reportnet 3.

The transition of reporting obligations from Reportnet 2 to Reportnet 3 will take a number of years. Therefore, Reportnet 2 will remain partly operational until 2025 when the last obligations will be transitioned, and then will become an archive. Reportnet 2 can be accessed from here:

Instructions on using the platform will be provided to each reporting group through the EEA thematic programmes.
