‘UK Approach’ to updating the UK’s Natura 2000 Standard Data Forms 2015
Each site within the United Kingdom's National Site Network (NSN) (Special Areas of Conservation and Special Protection Areas) has its own Standard Data Form (SDF) containing site-specific information. Since the UK's departure from the European Union, the data forms are generated by the NSN Database (formerly the Natura 2000 Database), whilst the SDFs continue to be produced using the Natura 2000 format.
The information provided in these data forms follows the officially agreed site information format for the National Site Network, as set out in the Official Journal of the European Union recording the Commission Implementing Decision of 11 July 2011 (2011/484/EU). Further technical documentation can be found at: http://cdr.eionet.europa.eu/help/natura2000. Several sections of the UK's previously published SDFs were updated in 2015, and details can be found in the UK Approach document.
