Regulation on Monitoring Greenhouse Gas Emissions has been revised

“Regulation of Change about Regulation on Monitoring of Greenhouse Gas Emissions” is published in the Official Gazette, dated 29.06.2016, no. 29757.

This published regulation has only been amended on one subject. As is known, the emission report for 2015 should be verified by 30 April 2016 and the emission report for 2016 should be verified and submitted to the Ministry by 30 April 2017 at the latest. The verification procedures, that have to be carried out, have not been started until 30 April 2016, because verification entity authorizations were not completed. With the amendment of this regulation, an extension has been introduced to this issue historically. In this case, the emission reports of 2015 should be verified by 30 April 2017 and communicated to the Ministry.

However, the important question here is whether this amendment in the Regulation combined the reporting and verification of 2 years. These two processes were not merged with this amendment in the regulation. This means that the organization and the verifier organization will carry out the processes separately for verification of the emission reports for 2015 and 2016. Only change is that now two processes have the same deadline. In this case, two separate contracts will be made, two separate annual emission reports will be prepared and two separate verification reports will be prepared.
