Abstract: The MSFD workshop on biodiversity (MSFD D1), held in Ispra JRC (7th-9th of September 2015) aimed to provide clear proposals and conclusions on some of the outstanding issues identified in the D1 review manual (May 2015 consultation version: https://circabc.europa.eu/w/browse/46d2b7ba-d2fd-4b3c-9eaf-18c7cb702b53) in the broader context of support to the review of Commission Decision 2010/477/EU. This report is complementing the Commission Decision 2010/477/EU review manual (JRC96521) and presents the result of the scientific and technical review concluding phase 1 of the review of the Commission Decision 2010/477/EU in relation to Descriptor 1. The review has been carried out by the EC JRC together with experts nominated by EU Member States, and has considered contributions from the GES Working Group in accordance with the roadmap set out in the MSFD implementation strategy (agreed on at the 11th CIS MSCG meeting). The main issues addressed and tackled in this workshop’s report are: - Common lists of elements for the biodiversity assessments (species & habitats) o Review of the “Biological Features” in Table 1 in the MSFD Annex III in relation to D1 requirements o Review of the “Habitat Types” entries in Table 1 in the MSFD Annex III in relation to D1 requirements - Selection/deselection criteria for the inclusion of species and habitats in a group - Updated criteria and indicators for D1 - Habitat/Bird Directives, WFD, Common Fisheries Policy and D1 o Use of species and habitats for the MSFD needs that are already included in other legislation and agreements o Links between status classification approaches (FCS vs GES, GEcS vs GES) - Streamlining of assessments, including scales of assessments - Cross-cutting issues related to D1 implementation o Aggregation rules within D1 criteria/indicators o Final GES integration across descriptors assessments Steps forward and technical needs for D1.
