Abstract: This chapter deals with the assessment of quality of the information used in Integrated Water Planning Processes. Firstly, the quality of information used in river basin assessment studies is analysed for the 5 case studies available for ADVISOR (Del Moral et al. 2002; Hatzilacou et al. 2002; Hill et al. 2002; Van Leeuwen et al. 2002; Videira et al. 2002). Quality categories are used to produce a diagnosis of a purposeful developed model of information flows, characteristic of water assessment studies. The scheme comprises criteria to analyse information produced and communicated and assessment activities undertaken. Subsequently, both a normative and a descriptive use of the quality categories is proposed in a form of a protocol for quality assurance, illustrated with an application to a case study in Portugal: The Mediated Modelling process in the Baixo Guadiana, suggesting its usefulness in the planning activities envisaged under the WFD.
