  • Application Process

  • Review of Application

  • Funding Mechanisms


1 application process

1. Application Process

Based on Decision 2012/12

  • Notification of application by 15th February

  • Supporting information included in the IIR

    • Evidence that the Party will exceed (or anticipate exceeding) its emission reduction commitments;

    • Evidence to what extent the adjustment to the emission inventory is expected to reduce the exceedance;

    • A demonstration that the proposed adjustment procedure is consistent with paragraph 1 of Decision 2012/3.


1 application process1

1. Application Process

  • For new emission source categories:

    • evidence that the new emission source category is acknowledged in scientific literature;

    • evidence that this source category is “new”;

    • evidence that this additions leads to non-compliance.

  • For significantly different EFs used for determining emissions from specific source categories:

    • a description of the original and updated emission factors;

    • evidence that the original EFs emission factors were used;

    • a comparison of original/new emission estimates;


1 application process2

1. Application Process

  • For significantly different methodologies used for determining emissions from specific source categories:

    • a description of the original and updated methodologies;

    • evidence that the original methodology was used;

    • a comparison of original and updated emission estimates demonstrating that the change in methodology contributes to a Party being unable to meet its reduction commitment;


1 application process3

1. Application Process

Does the revision

meet with one of the 3 adjustment criteria?

Not a valid case for an adjustment

no

yes

Is the revision

caused by a change in the

understanding of the science that could

not have been reasonably

foreseen?

no

yes

Can the Party

quantify the impact of

the revision?

no

yes

no

potential

consultation

Does the

adjustment review team

consider the application to meet

the required criteria?

2 review of application

2. Review of Application

Management of the Process

  • The review process will be managed by… CEIP?

  • At least two experts will be comissioned to undertake the review of the information provided?

  • The review will deliver a report that either recommends acceptance or rejection of the application.

  • This report will be submitted to CEIP, EMEP SB (and implementation committee if rejection).


3 funding mechanisms

3. Funding Mechanisms

  • Funding is unlikely to be available from EMEP

  • One option would be to require Parties to pay to have their application reviewed.

  • Cost will be dependent on the amount of work required for review.

    • Management costs (CEIP?)

    • Technical costs (review experts)
