Integration of Croatia into the aviation part of the EU ETS
While Croatia became an EU Member State on 1 July 2013, only the reporting obligations of the aviation part of the Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) will apply from that date.
Operators of flights within Croatia and between Croatia and non-EEA countries will need to surrender emission allowances only for flights carried out from 1 January 2014 onwards. Allowances for flights in 2014 will have to be surrendered by 30 April 2015.
The latest prior compliance list , from June 2013, identifies aircraft operators that carried out domestic flights within Croatia and flights between Croatia and non-EEA countries in 2012. This list therefore gives a preliminary indication of those operators which are likely to be concerned by the full integration of Croatia into the aviation part of the EU ETS. The operators concerned are invited to contact the competent authority of their Member State.
The European Commission will update the list of aircraft operators following Croatia's accession.
Monitoring and reporting of emissions from 1 July 2013
From 1 July 2013, domestic flights within Croatia and flights between Croatia and non-EEA countries ('additional flights') are considered as flights to or from an EU aerodrome and their emissions need to be reported to the aircraft operator's competent authority as identified in the list of operators.
The monitoring and reporting templates reflect the extension of the EU ETS to Croatia. The specific monitoring and reporting templates to be used in relation to 2013 aviation emissions are available on this website.
