On 3 April 2018 the European Commission will release verified EU ETS emissions data and compliance information for 2017

Calendar
15/03/2018

On 3 April 2018 at 12:00 Central European Summer Time (CEST), the European Commission will grant unlimited access to installation-level 2017 verified emissions data on the European Union Transaction Log (EUTL) website. Access to this data will be granted irrespective of the amount of data available. No aggregate data or interpretation will be made available.

  • The data, extracted on the 1st April at 12:00 CEST, will also be published at the same time in an Excel spreadsheet on the Union Registry page of this website. This data extract will be used to calculate the total number of allowances in circulation for the purposes of implementing the Market Stability Reserve.
  • On 2 May 2018 at 12:00 CEST, the European Commission will grant unlimited access on the EUTL website to the quantity of allowances surrendered per installation for 2017 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 4 May 2018 at 12:00 CEST setting out the aggregate number of international credits which has been exchanged for allowances by 30 April 2018.

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