Data Transferability

Data transferability and collection consistency has been a major focus for Annex IV since 2017. (Under this project, we define "data" to include raw or quality assured data, but also information especially in the form of analyses, reports, etc.). The goal is to engage the MRE community to enable the transfer of data from already permitted/consented projects to inform permitting/consenting of future projects. Steps in the process include developing a data transferability framework, data collection consistency table, monitoring dataset discoverability matrix, and best management practices to guide the transfer of data. If the MRE community were to embrace this process, the advantages include shorter permitting/consenting processes and lower costs for environmental baseline and monitoring data collection. Outreach and engagement in this area by Annex IV is highlighted here:
