National List of Sites of Community Importance
The Czech National List of Sites of Community Importance was published in the Collection of Laws as Government Regulation no. 132/2005 Coll. and comprised 863 sites located in the Pannonian and Continental Biogeographic Regions. Based on the European Commission requirements, the National List for the Pannonian Biogeographic Region was updated by Government Regulation no. 301/2007 Coll., amending Government Order no. 132/2005 Coll. The number of Sites of Community Importance in the Czech Republic thus increased to 879. List for the Continental Region was updated by Government Regulation no. 371/2009 Coll., amending Government Regulation no. 132/2005 Coll. In 2013 all three parts of the national list were summarized in Government Regulation no. 318/2013 Coll. The latest amendment of the national list was adopted in 2016 by Government Regulation no. 73/2016.
The total number of SCIs in the Czech Republic is currently 1111.
The National List is divided into two parts according to the biogeographic zones present in the Czech Republic: Pannonian (covering most of South Moravian Region and a part of Zlín Region), and Continental (96 % of the Czech Republic’s territory).
