Reporting of abatement plans

Reporting on

  • air emissions
  • air quality data
  • abatement plans
air emissions 1
Air Emissions 1
  • Since many years results are summarised in reports available on the internet.
  • Legal basisUN/ECE CLRTAP; NEC Dir; Monitoring mechanism; UNFCCC; in addition sector specific reporting, e.g. LCP; IPPC;....)
  • Format/contentwell defined; previously national totals, in SNAP categories.
  • Reporting on emissions under the UN/ECE CLRTAP and the NEC Dir. is currently revised and will include i.a. activity data and projections for 2010, 2015 and 2020.

  • In addition, Parties should report on current reduction plans taking into account their obligations under the protocols. Current legislation projections may deviate from current reduction plans in either direction depending on the state of legislation and projected future activity levels.

  • Commission; IC/checking legal compliance
  • CAFE/CLRTAP/Review, policy development
  • National experts/comparisons, modelling, trends...
  • Experts developing AQ models, e.g. EMEP/linking emissions with ambient air levels and deposition)
  • Experts doing IAM, e.g. CIAM/ development of cost effective emission reduction strategies
air quality data 1
Air Quality Data1
  • Reported since many years; summarised in reports, e.g. EMEP and EEA; available on the internet

Legal basisEoI; FWD & DD: Annual questionnaire; Ozone Dir., EMEP;

  • Formats/content
    • well defined
    • EoI: Raw data and meta data
    • FWD & DD: Assessment in relation to AQ LV
    • Ozone Dir: Exceedance statistics
    • EMEP: raw data
air quality data 2
Air Quality Data2


  • Commission/checking legal compliance with AQ Dir.
  • CAFE/review, policy development
  • National and international experts/ comparisons, trend assessment; success of measures;…
  • Experts doing effect studies, e.g. WHO
  • Experts developing AQ models, e.g. EMEP/validation;

  • Partly established (UNFCCC, ECE CLRTAP), partly under development (EC Dir.)


  • Legal basis: UNFCCC, COP decisions;
  •  COP 5.... promote progress to this end, each of these Parties shall communicate, within six months of the entry into force of the Convention for it and periodically thereafter.....detailed information on its policies and measures ..... as well as on its resulting projected anthropogenic emissions by sources and removals by sinks of greenhouse gases .....

  • Legal basis:Directive on National Emission Ceilings (NOX, SO2, NMVOC and NH3)

Article 6

  • 1. Member States shall, by 1 October 2002 at the latest, draw up programmes for the progressive reduction of national emissions of the pollutants referred to in Article 4 with the aim of complying at least with the national emission ceilings laid down in Annex I by 2010 at the latest.
  • 2. The national programmes shall include information on adopted and envisaged policies and measures and quantified estimates of the effect of these policies and measures on emissions of the pollutants in 2010. Anticipated significant changes in the geographical distribution of national emissions shall be indicated.

  • Proposal by Working Group on Implementation
    • What information should be reported?
    • Which level of detail is reasonable for this kind of information?
    • Is there any preferable format to provide that information?
    • (Is there guidance needed to help responsible authorities to obtain the information required to fulfil the reporting requirements?)
