Each data set defines a cross classification of a limited set of dimensions at different levels of the nomenclatures, aggregated across all other dimensions, for which statistics of good quality are required.

The conditions for collecting data set B1 will be decided by the Council on a proposal from the Commission in the light of the results of the pilot study during a three-year transitional period as defined in Article 10 of this Directive.
