EU ETS Verification Pdf

EU Emissions Trading Scheme for Aviation Sector

Verification of annual emissions reports and tonne-kilometre data

Aviation Emissions Challenge

The EU ETS directive has been revised to include the aviation sector

CO2 emissions from almost all flights taking off or landing at an EU member state aerodrome will need to be monitored

All airline operators that are covered by the legislation will have to report annual emissions to their designated EU ETS regulator. Operators can also apply for a free emissions allowance by reporting tonne-kilometre benchmark data for 2010. 

The emissions and benchmark data will need to be verified by an accredited third party verifier.

What is EU ETS Verification?

EU ETS Verification is a process by which an accredited third party gives assurance that the reported annual emissions or benchmark data is fairly stated and has been prepared in accordance with an approved monitoring plan.

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is a Gap analysis?

    This is an optional pre-verification service that will identify deficiencies in systems and processes and can reduce the risk and cost of compliance.

  • When should the verification process start?

    Your first report needs to be verified by March 31st, 2011. However we recommend that you start the process in early 2010. This can reduce compliance risk and avoid the need to re-calculate data to amend errors in systems.

  • What is tonne-kilometre benchmark data?

    Tonne-kilometre benchmark data is the payload mass on each flight multiplied by the distance travelled. It is used to calculate the proportion of free allowances an operator will be assigned from the overall emissions cap.

  • Who is my regulator?

    The European Commission has published a list of aircraft operators in the Official Journal of the European Union and the member state which will regulate them. Each member state must nominate a Competent Authority. 

    Bureau Veritas works closely with all the European Competent Authorities and can advise you in selecting the most appropriate contact.
