Commissions

National lists of birds are managed by national commissions. The Association of European Rarities Committees (AERC) has developed international guidelines for the work of such commissions.

The commissions define those species in their area of responsibility that are subject to reporting procedures. Sightings of rare birds are reported using prepared reporting forms, often online. These reports are checked to ensure a minimum standard of scientific documentation and are then either accepted or rejected.
