As announced on 27 April, the full activation of the EU Emissions Trading System single registry, including the migration of over 30,000 EU ETS accounts from national registries, is scheduled to take place in June. The transition timetable is as follows:
Account holders will have to comply with increased documentation requirements and security features to access the transferred accounts in the single registry. Account holders will not be able to transfer any allowances until all necessary documentation requirements are completed.
National helpdesks will continue to provide support to account holders in particular in case of questions or difficulties during the transition.
Should any change to this schedule become necessary during the transition period, updated information will be communicated on this website.
The single registry to be activated in June will not contain all the required functionalities for phase 3. In particular, a first update following the activation of the single registry will cover functions enabling phase 3 auctions, new account categories and a trusted account list. Software development for this first update has already commenced and the scheduled timetable will be communicated by 15 July.
