The submission of sites to the European Commission entails the preparation of a datasheet and a map for each site, that is, for each proposed Site of Community Importance (SCI) and for each Special Protected Area (SPA), unless a proposed SCI has the exact boundary as an SPA; in the latter case only one datasheet is prepared comprising all relevant information.

Reference can be made to the Natura 2000 viewer (including datasheets) and to the Natura 2000 database to obtain information on each Natura 2000 site for European Union Member States. Information for the sites nominated by Malta is also available through these links (depending on update dates). Since a few years ago, submission of information to the European Commission is made through the uploading of the relevant material online; hence the most recent submissions made by Malta are publicly available online. The table below provides quick access to the Standard Data Forms (SDFs) and Maps for Malta’s sites.

It is important to highlight the fact that certain information might be lacking or requires updating in the near future, since through further studies and surveys, additional information, especially with respect to habitat types and species present within selected sites, will be collated. The exercise is considered to be an ongoing process, and as such, relevant information is updated accordingly when necessary. Additionally, selected information is not publicly available in view of its sensitive nature when considering the conservation of the sites/habitats/species in question.

Reference Portal related to the Natura 2000 dataflow provides the relevant material for the dataflow in question.
