During the project seven standard operating procedures (SOP) were developed for the four data domains (zoonoses, chemical contaminant, pesticide residues and veterinary medical products residues). The SOPs describe 1) How the national governance of risk assessment data is organised, 2) how data are collected and validated before delivering to EFSA covering all four domains, 3) How data is transferred to EFSA, 4) how to respond to EFSA request for clarification, update and confirmation of data, and 5) how to respond to EFSA request for additional data including PAD requests. Ten enhancements have been developed and implemented in the national reporting system to improve the process of collating and validating data before uploading data to the EFSA DCF. These developments improve the data quality and ensure a higher consistency on the metadata information provided with a data line. The project also included the development of data quality objectives for the four domains. This development was a facilitated by EFSA and carried out as 12 teleconferences.
