The ICPR has decided to derive environmental quality standards for the Rhine according to the rules of Annex V, Paragraph 1.2.6 of the Water Framework Directive (WFD) for the list of substances relevant for the Rhine.
As far as possible, these EQS Rhine are to be based on the target values developed in the ICPR so far.
The document at hand contains the environmental quality standard (EQS Rhine) for copper as substance relevant for the Rhine. The environmental quality standards for the Rhine are not legally binding.
The document at hand completes the report no. 164.
