Registries for the EU scheme

  • … and minimum requirements for Member States’ national registries


Some basic considerations

Some basic considerations

  • Registries are NOT trading platforms, and so transfers are entirely distinct from trades and price information

  • Registries may be maintained in a consolidated system

  • Any person may hold allowances


Registries for the eu scheme1

Registries for the EU scheme

(i)Trades within a single Member State give rise to adjustment between the operators involved in that Member State only

(ii) Trades between entities in different Member States give rise to:

a) adjustment of allowance holdings between operators involved

b) adjustment of assigned amount units between Member States involved (from 2008)

Monitoring Mechanism Proposal: Article 6

“The Community and its Member States shall establish and maintain registries in order to ensure the accurate accounting of the issue, holding, transfer, cancellation and retirement of assigned amount units, removal units, emission reduction units and certified emission reductions. These registries shall incorporate registries established pursuant to Article 19 of Directive xx/xxxx/EC …”

Macro processes

Macro processes

  • The following macro processes have been defined for the functional specifications:

    • The management of registry accounts

    • The issuance, allocation, cancellation, retirement and eventual banking of allowances

    • The transfer of allowances domestically/internationally

    • The assessment of compliance - reconciliation between holdings of allowances and verified emissions

    • The production of reports


Key issues

Key issues

  • Maintaining compatibility with UNFCCC data exchange standards

  • Ensuring access to information delivers transparency but does not impact on market

  • CPR the responsibility of individual Parties, not entities

  • Minimising administrative costs:

    • Linking entities’ account numbers to Member State permit numbering systems?

    • Providing verifiers’ access to input entities’ annual emissions data?
