The European Commission will release verified EU ETS emissions data and compliance information for 2015 starting on 1 April 2016.
The procedure will be as follows:
- On 1 April 2016 at 12:00 Central European Summer Time (CEST), the European Commission will grant unlimited access to installation-level 2015 verified emissions data on the European Union Transaction Log (EUTL) website. The data will also be published at the same time in an Excel spreadsheet on the Union Registry page of this website. Access to this data will be granted irrespective of the amount of data available. No aggregate data or interpretation will be made available.
- On 2 May 2016 at 12:00 CEST, the European Commission will grant unlimited access on the EUTL website to the quantity of allowances surrendered per installation for 2015 as well as the installation-level compliance code, setting out whether an operator surrendered the required amount of allowances, based on the data available on 30 April. The compliance information data will also be published at the same time in an Excel spreadsheet on the Union Registry page of this website.
In phase 3 of the EU ETS international credits – i.e. Certified Emission Reductions (CERs) and Emission Reduction Units (ERUs) – are exchanged rather than used directly. The Commission will therefore publish a regulatory update on 2 May 2016 at 12:00 CEST setting out the aggregate number of international credits which has been exchanged for allowances by 30 April 2016.
[The term "installation" refers either to a fixed installation or an aircraft operator.]
