Abstract

The current paper provides an overview of the heavy metals monitoring data (2006 - 2018), matrices and proposed threshold values used for the assessment of the Descriptors 8 and 9 during MSFD reporting cycles: Initial assessment (2012), and updates of the MSFD Articles 8, 9 and 10 (2018). Compiled information helps evaluate long-term trends and actual state of Black Sea Romanian waters with respect to these contaminants and to identify aspects that need further development, in order to achieve consistency with the MSFD Commission Decision (EU 2017/848) and also harmonization at regional and European level regarding the assessment methodologies of good ecological status (GES).
