Our independent service supports all types of installation operators who need to meet the EU Emissions Trading System, Phase 3 regulation (EU ETS3) for baseline verification. This includes organisations operating in the chemical, glass, metallurgy, paper and refinery industries, and elsewhere with a fuel combustion of 20MW or greater.
Under this requirement, operators need to have their free allocation of emission allowances verified by an accredited verifier body within 12 months after the start of normal operation. This requirement refers to the verified and approved first day of a continuous 90-day period during which the installation operates at least at 40% of the capacity that the equipment is designed to accommodate.
Is this for you?
Emission allowances were initially based upon baseline data (2005–2008 or optionally 2009–2010) that needed to be verified by an accredited verification body by July 2011. However, during the Phase 3 period (2013–2020), new entrants and operators involved with capacity change, merges and splits fell into the scope of New Entrant & Closure. This means they need to apply for a baseline verification by an accredited body.
