The EC adopts two new regulations applicable for aircraft operators and verifiers
Today the European Commission (EC)adopted two new regulations on monitoring and reporting of greenhouse gas emissions (M&R regulation) and on verification and accreditation of verifiers under the EU ETS (A&V regulation). These two regulations will apply from 1 January 2013, i.e. for the 2013 data to be reported by 31 March 2014.
For aircraft operators, the main change is the increase of the threshold to be considered as a small emitter. Non-commercial and commercial operators emitting between 10,000 and 25,000 tCO2 a year will be eligible to use the simplified procedure to monitor fuel consumption.
Other changes are summarized in the section 11 of the document available for download below called 'What is new from 2013?'.
Aircraft operators will have to prepare and submit by 30 September 2012 a new monitoring plan for the 2013-2020 monitoring period that complies with the new M&R regulation.
