Calendar
18/03/2019

On 1 April 2019 at 12:00 Central European Summer Time (CEST), the European Commission will grant unlimited access to installation-level 2019 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 2019 at 12:00 CEST, the European Commission will grant unlimited access on the EUTL website to the quantity of allowances surrendered per installation for 2018 as well as the installation-level compliance code, based on the data available on 30 April, setting out whether an operator surrendered the required amount of allowances. 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 6 May 2019 at 12:00 CEST setting out the aggregate number of international credits which has been exchanged for allowances by 30 April 2019.

[The term "installation" refers either to a fixed installation or an aircraft operator.]
