background
Background
  • During the course of 2009/2010, the waiting time associated with new project submissions has become an area of increasing focus and urgency for the Executive Board.
  • In 2009/2010, the Board, supported by the secretariat, has undertaken a number of measures (VVM, new procedures etc.) in an attempt to:
    • Reduce the waiting time for new project submissions;
    • Increase efficiency in CDM project cycle; and
    • Assess quality of submissions.

Background

The Board has taken several measures to address the issue, including:

  • Introduction of an enhanced completeness check for project submissions (EB 48);
  • Prioritizing new submissions over resubmissions (EB 53);
  • Adoption of new procedures for registration of project activities and issuance of CERs (EB 54);
  • Adoption of new review procedures for registration and issuance (EB 55).
new registration issuance procedures
New Registration & Issuance Procedures
  • Adopted during EB 54 (May 2010).
  • It has increased transparency regarding the secretariat’s assessment of project submissions and include predictable timelines for when a project submission is handled by the secretariat.
  • Checklists for each of the two stage completeness checks (initial completeness check and information and reporting check) were issued.
  • Further, to incentivize the high quality initial submissions, the Board at its 59th Meeting revised this procedure with the effective date of registration being the date by which the DOE submits a complete request for registration.

New Registration & Issuance Procedures
  • Initial Completeness Check (CC) is the first “action” taken by the Secretariat when dealing with “Requests for Registration & Issuance”;

New Registration & Issuance Procedures
  • As per the new procedures, projects that fail to pass either of these two stage completeness checks (initial CC and I&RC) are sent back to the PP/DOE for corrections and when resubmitted, these requests are treated like new submissions (without priority).
  • The idea behind this change is to create an incentive for high quality initial submissions.
  • Similarly, making the secretariat’s checklists publicly available is intended to increase transparency and allow PP/DOEs to anticipate work performed by the secretariat and thereby also improve the quality of submissions.
new registration issuance review procedures
New Registration & Issuance Review Procedures
  • Adopted during EB 55 (July 2010).
  • Key features:
    • Multiple rounds of review assessments and corrections have been eliminated.
    • The Board discussion of each review case is now triggered only if there is a disagreement between the assessments provided by respectively the secretariat and the RIT, or if a Board member disagrees with the recommendation made by the secretariat and the RIT.
  • These two features are expected to simplify and speed up the review process for requests for registration and issuance.

New Procedures Implementation Timeline - Summary
results and statics to date
Results and statics to date…..

Compliance charts – Registration & Issuance

  • Time taken for steps in assessment process - actions are being completed within the timelines established;
  • Seems revised procedures have also partially led to a decrease in the overall waiting time due to the streamlining of the steps in general.
results and statics to date3
Results and statics to date…..
  • Since December 2010 for Registration and since January 2011 for Issuance, projects upon submission have been commenced for assessment within less than a month’s time.
  • Operational planning will continue to make use of outsourcing (external experts) to address future peaks in submissions and reoccurrence of similar backlog.
  • Approved staffing levels is expected to be completed within 2011.
conclusion
Conclusion…
  • Although registration related submissions may be sustainably handled with recent operational adjustments and resource plans (including outsourcing), this is unlikely for issuance given the continued expected growth in requests.
  • To achieve a longer term balance and to ensure secretariat provides timely assessment of projects, the Board will need to consider further improvements and clarifications of its rules and guidelines (for example sampling).
