Please refer to the sub-sections below for details.
In the area of industrial processes, production data from association statistics and of manufacturers' information is used. In the interest of the inventory's completeness and reliability, checking of source-category definitions and data-collection methods will stay a priority where emissions reporting is based on such sources.
