​When will Croatia join the EU ETS?

By 1 January 2014, the aviation part of the EU ETS should expand to Croatia due to the country's planned accession to the EU on 1 July 2013. The scope of the aviation part of the EU ETS will therefore in the future cover some additional flights: the domestic flights within Croatia, as well as those between Croatia and non-EEA countries.

Aircraft operators performing domestic flights within Croatia and flights between Croatia and non-EEA countries have the possibility to monitor the Tonne-Kilometre (TK) data for the additional flights in 2012 and to apply for additional free allowances by 31 March 2013.

If you intend to perform such flights in 2012, you may be eligible to perform TK monitoring in 2012 and apply for free allowances in 2013. Any aircraft operator who will perform domestic flights within Croatia or flights between Croatia and non-EEA countries in 2012 and is not exempt from the EU ETS, has a right to participate in the TK exercise in 2012.

According to the Croatian law, an updated TK monitoring plan has to be sent by 31 August 2011 to the Croatian competent authority (Visnja Grgasovic, +385 1 3782 117, visnja.grgasovic@mzopu.hr).

You are requested to use the following template for monitoring the TK data for the additional flights in 2012: Monitoring plan for TK data. You can simply use your previously approved TK plan and update it using this new similar template.

You can find further information on the EC's web page: http://ec.europa.eu/clima/policies/transport/aviation/croatia/index_en.htm or by contacting the Croatian competent authority.
