THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 1143/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 22 October 2014 on the prevention and management of the introduction and spread of invasive alien species (1), and in particular of Article 24(4) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Regulation (EU) No 1143/2014 provides that the Commission is to specify the technical formats for reporting in order to simplify and streamline reporting obligations for the Member States in relation to the information pursuant to Article 24(1) thereof.

(2)

For this purpose, this Implementing Regulation limits the reporting of free texts, facilitates the collection of data for the purpose of deriving key indicators and favours reference to information that is already publically available at national level while using the benefits of applying Directive 2007/2/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (2) for spatial data as well as ensuring coherence with related policies such as Directives 2000/60/EC (3), 2008/56/EC (4) and 2009/147/EC (5) of the European Parliament and of the Council and Council Directive 92/43/EEC (6).

(3)

Directive 2007/2/EC requires that public authorities in the Member States make spatial data sets available in conformity with the implementing rules on metadata, network services and interoperability of spatial data sets and services set out in Commission Regulation (EU) No 1089/2010 (7), including the provisions in Section 18 of Annex IV (‘Species Distribution’) of that Regulation.

(4)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee on Invasive Alien Species,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

The technical formats to be used by the Member States for transmitting to the Commission the information pursuant to Article 24(1) of Regulation (EU) No 1143/2014 are set out in the Annex to this Regulation.

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on the twentieth day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.
