Integration of Croatia into the aviation part of the EU ETS
As of 1 January 2014 Croatia is fully integrated into the aviation part of the Emissions Trading System (EU ETS). Between 1 July 2013, when Croatia acceded to the European Union, and 31 December 2013 only the reporting obligations of the EU ETS applied.
Operators of flights within Croatia and between Croatia and non-EEA countries 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.
See the list determining the administering Member State for each aircraft operator. Since September 2013 the list includes operators that performed domestic flights within Croatia, and flights between Croatia and non-EEA countries, in 2012.
Monitoring and reporting of emissions from 1 July 2013
Since 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.
