The CCE is pleased to welcome you to its new website! In 2018 the CCE was transferred to the German Environment Agency (UBA, located in Dessau) from the Dutch National Institute for Public Health (RIVM), where it was established in 1990.

The objectives of the CCE are 1) to develop and update the methodologies enabling the assessment of critical loads; 2) to compile national data on critical loads into a European database; 3) to generate maps of European critical loads and their exceedances and to provide the results to the relevant bodies under the Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution (CLRTAP), especially for the purpose of policy support through integrated assessment. In order to perform these tasks, the CCE collaborates with a European network of National Focal Centres (NFCs) of the International Cooperative Programme on Modelling and Mapping of Critical Levels and Loads and Air Pollution Effects, Risks and Trends (ICP M&M).

We are pleased to inform that the current call for data has been extended until 28 February 2019. All NFCs are kindly asked to review their submissions to the CCE and revise as necessary. The instructions and the data format are identical to those in the Call for Data 2015-2017 and can be downloaded from the following links:
